  • European Championship Baseball in Czech Republic

    From July 7 to July 17 the European Championship Baseball will be played in the Czech Republic.

    Today most games were cancelled due to heavy rainfall.

    Only two games haven been played:

    Group A: -Netherlands vs Great Britain: 4-0
    Group B: -Spain vs Czech Republic: 10-1

    Other participants are:

    Group A: Germany, Italy, Russia and Sweden
    Group B: Croatia, France, Ukraine and Greece

    Maybe it is a nice idea to report a game of your own national team. So Perseas, I am very curious of your report.

    Here is the boxscore of the game Netherlands vs Great Britain:

          Not to go OT on you, Yankees rule, but it boggles my mind that all of these European countries are capable of fielding baseball teams for a competitive tourney, and yet baseball still got the Olympic axe. I had no idea that they even knew what baseball was in nations like Croatia, Czech Rep, etc.

          Yesterday I was angry when I read about the IOC's decision to expunge baseball from the Olympics. Today, I’m both angry and confused. Jacques Rogge is an imbecile, plain and simple. Long live baseball in Europe!...and I hope Rogge gets beaned by a screaming line drive the next time he passes a European baseball field.

            I can understand your frustration. But as long as MLB doesn't want to let their players go to the Olympics, I think you can also blame them.

            It has been said several times at the Olympics thread. The Olympics are held during the MLB season. There is too much money involved to let the players go. Nowadays there are so much players from different countries in MLB, I think you may say that maybe one fourth of MLB players will be on the Olympics. How do you replace them?

            But if the best players would go, it will not be a problem to form a team of American Major Leaguers the first time. But just look at the NBA players. The first time it wasn't difficult to form a dream team 1. But with the last Olympics the Americans had a hard time to find players who were willing to play for their country. As a result Argentina won the tournament.
            I think that would happen with MLB players as well.

            I even wonder if Belgium would have been a real baseball country (they even didn't qualify for the European Championships), Rogge would have decided to lobby against baseball.

              The Tournament is played in four cities: Prague, Olomouc, Chocen and Blansko.

              Here are some pictures of the baseball fields.

                      The most surprising result of today is the result of the game Czech Republic vs Greece: 14-0. The Greek didn't get any hit.

                      Other results are:

                      Ukraine - France 0 : 10 (8 innings)
                      Russia - Sweden 2 : 3 (13 innings)
                      Italy - Great Britain 12 : 0 (7 innings)
                      Greece - Czechia 0 : 14 (7 innings)
                      Sweden - Germany 3 : 6
                      Netherlands - Russia 11 : 1 (7 innings)

                      There is still one game going on: Spain vs Croatia: 9-4 in the 7th inning.

                        THAT FIELD'S HUGE!!! Definetly not a field for batters... The field is really big, and look at how much space's left as foul ground... Is odd, coz baseball field these days are designed to help batting, rather than pitching, as to make the game more exciting

                        You can see that only the old ballparks in the majors have a considerable foul ground space... The new parks just have the minimum, if any... They prefer putting skyboxes right in the action... That's where the money's at

                            This year the Greek team is setting itself up for the future. Unlike the past major tournament participations, 13 players out of the 25-man roster actually play in the Greek league and are not Americalns of Greek descent. This may weaken the team orverall but we are slowly trying to get up on our own two feet. In the win against Croatia we had three Greek league players in the starting lineup and in the loss against the Czech Republic we had four. The good thing is that these guys get play time and don;t just sit on the bench watching the Greek-Americans. Unless we get relegated to the B' Division (which I think is highly unlikely) I will deem this tournament a success for us regardless of the final spot...
