Awaiting Review
Nick Name Akademic Baseball Club
Earliest Known Date 1988
Location Sofia, Bulgaria

When Jack Brenner, a University of Washington English professor, traveled to Bulgaria as a Fulbright lecturer in 1988, he was astonished to see a group of young men playing baseball on a soccer field in Sofia. By that time, the Akademic Baseball Club had already be formed and Brenner began working with the club, led by Yuri Alklay and Georgi Dimitrov, who had roughly translated the rules of the game into Bulgarian. Brenner's involvement must have been very welcomed, as Alkalay, Dimitrov and their teammates were using a vegetable crate as a catcher's mask before the American secured the group proper equipment."
