Welcome to Leksand, and Leksand Baseball and Softball Club!

Leksand Baseball and Softball Club is Sweden’s oldest and most successful baseball club with 20 national championship wins in baseball, and 7 in softball. Today the club has 130 members, who play baseball and softball in all series, from the youth series to the premier league (Elitserien).

Leksand
The town of Leksand is located on the south shores of Lake Siljan, in the in the district of Dalarna, Sweden. The small town is, apart from baseball, nationally known for its genuine Midsummer celebrations, very popular hockey team Leksands IF, picturesque villages and the fact that we have a bakery that sells delicious hard bread under the name of Leksandsbröd. See the menu to the left to learn more about Leksand.

Leksand Baseball, since 1950s
Our founding father, Mr. Ove Leander, was only 14 years old when he first got in touch with baseball
in the late 1950s. He gathered his friends and founded the club that is still one of Sweden’s leading baseball clubs. It’s a fascinating story about a boy and his dream, but we will save that for next time you visit us, and we tell you in person.

Swedish Baseball Academy in Leksand
In the autumn of 2006 the Swedish Baseball Academy in Leksand opened the doors for its first class of students. The Academy is supported by MLB and runs a regional secondary school with baseball as speciality, and a Baseball College at the Leksand Folkhögskola.

The Swedish Baseball and Softball association presented the idea of a Swedish Baseball Academy for the MLB in January 2006, during the ABCA Convention in Chicago. After several meetings and correspondence, the MLB announced that they had chosen to support the Swedish Baseball Academy with resources such as instructors, equipment and coach training.

The Swedish Baseball and Softball Association  have, against tough competition, been chosen as one of six countries in Europe. The other countries that MLB supports are The Netherlands, Italy, France, Great Britain and Germany. All countries have chosen a similar way of how to combine studies and training for the students.

The support from the MLB, as of today, consists of professional coaches coming to Leksand (Jeff Krushell former S&C Toronto Blue Jays, Kyle Barbour S&C Arizona Diamondbacks AAA Sidewinders, Tom Gillespie Academy Consultant MLB, Dave Ewing MLB Envoy Program) and equipment. With the MLB´s professionalism and high quality standards in mind, the cooperation is something that Swedish Baseball and Softball is truly proud of.
