The International Baseball League of Australia was a baseball league which existed from 1999 to 2002.
The league was created by David Nilsson after he purchased the rights to the Australian Baseball League in 1999 when it was near financial collapse. The International Baseball League lasted for 3 seasons before Nilsson handed the rights back over to the Australian Baseball Federation in 2002. Since this time there has been no national league in Australia except the yearly Claxton Shield held in January.
There are unofficial reports of an Australian Baseball League part owned by Major League Baseball and the Australian Baseball Federation starting up in late 2007.
