CEB and KNBSB should review their regulations

Yes you are reading it well. The European Confederation of Baseball (CEB) and the Royal Dutch Baseball and Softball Federation (KNBSB) should review their regulations. 

Why? Well, let me explain.

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor Euro League BaseballThe International Skating Union (ISU) tried to prohibit speed skaters to participate in a lucrative speed skating event in Dubai (yes it sounds strange: Speed skating in de desert).
The ISU threatened that whoever would participate in this event, would face a livelong ban.

A few Dutch speed skaters that wanted to participate, put this issue on the agenda of the ISU. A year later, the European Commission started an investigation after the abuse of power of the ISU.

The European Commission is worried about the sanctions that the ISU is imposing on athletes. These sanctions are not created to maintain higher standards in the sport of speed skating but the main purpose is to keep a grip on speedskating.
