This year from 9-18 September the European Baseball Championship took place in the Netherlands, more specific the sports accommodation of the Hoofddorpse Baseball club Pioniers. An amazing location with American MLB (Major League Baseball) professional standards. Unique in Europe!
I am a member of the ETO (the operator of the sports accommodation) strategic think tank. So you can image that I am really proud to host the European Championships!
The organisation and Dutch team were very succesfull this tournament. Every day more than 10.000 spectators visited the event and there was live broadcasting on the Dutch television. And the Dutch team won all their matches, including the final against Spain. The final was a thrill seeking one and ‘we’ did it: European Champion! Congrats!
