BBFAGMMEMBERSREPORT| 22FEB2020


EXECUTIVEBOARDMESSAGE Dear Members, In 2019, it was the most significant year for baseball in Great Britain. For example, we were hosts to Major League Baseball (MLB) London Series which showcased the New York Yankees vs Boston Red Sox. The mentioned was the first MLB regular-season games held in Europe. We want to thank MLB for their confidence in working with us and extending their hospitality to the entire baseball community. This year we look forward again to working with Major League Baseball, i.e., to support them in any way we can with the London Series (St Louis Cardinals v Chicago Cubs) 13-14 June 2020 at the London Stadium.

Last year, we operated on a matrix management model. For example, we made use of cross-functional skills and persons to deliver: our website, leagues, schedules, running our National Teams, overseeing our finances, organising British Baseball TV (YouTube channel) running logistics, marketing, officials, and other operations. The mentioned developed a good sense of teamwork from all involved (from our executive board throughout our other volunteers). As a result, we were able to deliver successfully during the most significant year of baseball events and experience in Great Britain. Our strategy remains to: -

M ANAGEM ENT SCOPE By way of background, the British Baseball Federation (BBF) Executive board is accountable for the way the National Governing Body operates. To learn more about our BBF Management Structure click the link. Our all-volunteer executive board holds a variety of professional skills: certified accountant, international lawyer, business development professionals, data analytic professional, and professional C-level management executive. In addition, our senior management has over 30 years of international baseball experience.

-

Align our costs to our objectives and minimise the financial impact on our members. Improve our members' experience through systems and process optimisation. We will change and improve as we align our activity with our intent to meet our mission. Value our members' as they are the key to the development of our sport.

In 2019, we became compliant with UKAD Anti-doping policies and guidelines. That is, we adopted the mentioned as part of our baseball rules link. Also, we provided online anti-doping training to our national teams and members.

BBFAGMMEMBERSREPORT| 22FEB2020


M EM BERSHIP Last year, we had 30 member clubs (youth and adult) from across the country join us for the 2019 BBF baseball league season. This year ending (31 Jan 2020) we have 33 member clubs (10% increase) affiliated to the BBF with others expressing to join before the start of our season. In 2019, the regular season and national championships culminated in late August and September. Congratulations to all our National Champions (youth and seniors). We cannot say enough about our member clubs, who are made up of volunteers. All member clubs throughout the country (BBF or non-affiliated) deserve a lot of credit for promoting our sport. FINANCIAL REVIEW We continue to derive running our operations from our member 's registration fees and private donations. The BBF is a 100% self-funded organisation. We agreed to keep cash reserves around the high levels of four years ago and as a result we spent more last year, where possible to promote our leagues, meet the demand from the London Series, promote our National Teams and Federation. Our cash reserves are still near the highs of four years ago, and all while we successfully delivered value to the public on the most exciting year in British Baseball. While we continued to stream some select games through our British Baseball Federation (BBF) TV - YouTube channel link which promotes our sport and which games were seen in over 25 countries, we only did so after receiving private donations earmarked for streaming select fixtures through YouTube. Our YouTube game webcasts had n o financial impact on our fees collected from our members and on our reserves. For example, the costs to run the webcasts were 100% offset by the private donations received at the end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020.

www.britishbaseball.org

In 2019, we shifted from our dependence on BaseballSoftballUK (BSUK) Service Level Agreement by moving outsourced operations too in house, e.g., website, communications, marketing, administration and more. Further, we paid ÂŁ6000 to BSUK to end a dispute over our domains, members data, website, and intellectual property. As a result, we begin a roadmap to transform our Federation. For example, but not exhaustive: securing our assets, enhancing our corporate governance, exploring commercial opportunities, aligning and partnering with new strategic stakeholders, focusing on youth baseball and our national teams, developing better skill alignment in our leagues, organises better ways to develop officials and coaches (online tools) and by providing our members a better experience. In 2020, we expect to reduce our website costs by more than ÂŁ1000. Further, we expect to realise savings (aggregate) of 12% on our member 's insurance, and we hope to secure new private donations. The mentioned comes after we have demonstrated we can deliver across multidimensional events as the national governing body which adheres to accountability and adheres to evidence-based performance. Last year, our national teams expanded at all age levels. We believe the mentioned is an excellent sign of participants of our sport motivated to be a part of British Baseball. However, the financial demands to run five national teams and meet the logistical challenges involved in our national teams to travel abroad are challenging. In 2019, we are glad to report; we were able to secure for our Seniors National Team a grant from UK Sport (Aspiration Fund). We want to extend our gratitude to UK Sport for the above. Seeking direct funding for our sport and other events is a financial option we are seriously exploring. In 2020, we will continue to enhance our resilient financial operating model built on stable recurring income, supplemented by private donations and explore commercial opportunities. Overall our membership fees have n ot increased over the last four years. We are glad to report even though in 2019 it was British baseball greatest year and an operational financial challenge to us in running our National Teams, overseeing our sport, (e.g., 1000 games, organised, leagues and supporting special events), we are in sound financial condition as we begin the 2020 season.

GREAT BRITAIN NATIONAL TEAM S (GB BASEBALL)

OFFICIALS

Last year was another first for our Federation, as we oversaw the continued development of a team at every age division (U12, U15, U18, U23 and Seniors) for our National Team Programme. In 2019, over 90 coaches, volunteers, managers, players and support staff were organised and competed against Europe's best. Our Seniors team went on to compete to make the Olympics; however, it just fell short. Our Seniors Team still had a strong showing which combined with a great result from our U12 team in Czech, our U15 team in Germany, our U18 team in Sweden, and our strong showing from our U23 team in Czech; it exemplified an excellent year for GB Baseball. We want to extend a much-deserved thank you for your support to GB Baseball.

We are honoured by our British officials from across the country in our sport. Last year, British baseball officials were selected to take part in European and other international tournaments and events. We are committed to developing officials. For example, we continue to invest in running free umpiring clinics at the start of the season. In 2020, we introduced online webinars to develop our officials.

At the end of 2019, Great Britain Baseball was rewarded for their hard work and dedication by earning a WBSC ranking of 31st in the world (up to seven spaces, one of the top five movers up in the world and up over 18% among all the other countries). To culminate the year, Major League Baseball and the Major League Players Association have extended an invitation to our Seniors Team, and it has been accepted. That is, our Seniors team is set to compete in the 2020 World Baseball Classic Qualifier in Tucson, Arizona in March, 2020, read more about the mentioned link.

You cannot have organised baseball without umpires. So, we commend our officials in making it possible for us to oversee 1000 games. PONY BASEBALL We want to thank Pony Baseball for extending awards and support to our Youth National Baseball Championships. Also, in hosting member club - the London Archers Baseball Club Youth team which represented Great Britain at the Pony Baseball - International World Series in the US. LITTLE LEAGUE By popular demand our youth clubs lobbied to elect a UK District Administrator (DA) as prescribed by the rules of Little League. Previously the DA post was un-elected and held by the CEO of BSUK. In 2019, Darrin Muller was unanimously elected the DA of UK Little League. We look forward to extend our support to Darrin and Little League.

"Corporategovernanceisabout promotingfairness, transparency andaccountabil ity." BASEBALLSOFTBALLUK (BSUK) The British Baseball Federation (BBF) is the National Governing Body (NGB) of baseball. Further, the BBF is a 50% member of BaseballSoftballUK (BSUK) a private company by guarantee in England and Wales. BSUK charges the BBF for select services through a Service Level Agreement (SLA). Primarily the BBF has assigned the development of baseball to BSUK, e.g., to develop both participants and teams to play our sport. As a result, the BBF allows BSUK to solicit for public grant money from Sport England, (e.g., over ÂŁ6 million over ten years) to make use of the funds to satisfactorily develop our sport and work in the best interest of the British Baseball Federation (a member of the company). In 2019, both the chair non-executive independent director and senior non-independent directors from BSUK resigned amid allegations against the senior management of the company, which we as a member of the company took very seriously. The relationship between the senior management of BSUK and the BBF has been a complex one over the years. However, as the member to their company we have the right to expect prompt answers to our legitimate questions, especially under allegations from two resigning independent directors of BSUK. In July 2019, we submitted several queries to the senior management of BSUK which remained unanswered or the answers where incomplete. We as a member to the company expect the senior management of BSUK to provide us the highest fiduciary accountability for their actions, and to act in a prompt, co-operative and fair manner. As a consequence of BSUK not being co-operative or working in a prompt manner with us, (a member of the company and the national governing body of the sport), we formally called Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) in August 2019, and issued the company's senior management a vote of "n o con f iden ce." Subsequently, on the 13th January, 2020 BSUK provided us more answers to our initial questions (i.e., six months and 27 days later from when we submitted our initial questions in July 2019). We have begun a thematic review of our relationship with BSUK.

Our management strategy extends to being forward-thinking, agile and work for better governance standards.

The BBF is the national governing body of baseball. We are one Federation made up of several member clubs, our officials, participants, national teams, and volunteers. We must remain tolerant of the diversified persons who make up our sport and opinions. While opinion varies and the fan base grows in our sport, we ask you to go out, watch, support, promote others or you to play baseball. The sport of baseball is a great sport to be active, e.g., develop your mental health, physical well being, great to make new friends and develop team building. The sport of baseball is for everyone, regardless of race, sexual orientation, background, age, and skill. The sport of baseball seeds started in England. The British baseball community owe it to everyone to showcase the intangibles of taking part in baseball in Great Britain, e.g., tolerance, accept everyone for who they are and encourage them to take part. However, we need your support. With your help, we can foster new ideas to promote the sport, seek new investment in our members clubs and national teams, strive for quality in baseball (coaching, officiating, player development) and develop a culture of good sportsmanship.
