HABF was founded in 1997 preparation for the hosting of the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens. The leagues' inaugural season was in 2000, with Marousi 2004 from Athens winning the Greek Baseball league title that year. The inaugural Greek Cup was also held in 2000 and was won by the another Athenian team, Spartakos Glyfadas. HABF currently has about 20 men's amateur teams playing in two stadiums and a number of practice fields. U.S. and Greek players compete in the league.
