Description

In 1922 an American expatriate, Stepanos Darius, "organized the first Lithuanian Baseball League, with a club called 'Lietuvos Fizinio Lavinimois [sic] Sajunga'  from Kaunas winning the first championship. The following year  Lithuanian team called Aviacijos took the country's first international victory, beating a squad from Estonia 11 to 7. In 1924 Darius took the essential step of translating the rules of baseball from English to Lithuanian." See Chetwynd, Baseball in Europe (McFarland, 2008), p. 215.

The LFLS (Lithuanian Union of Physical Exercise) seems to have been an umbrella organization covering other sports as well.
