Future of ELB may not be as gloomy as it looks like, part 2
About two months ago you could read here that the future of the Euro League Baseball does not look as bad as you might think. Today the league confirmed this in a press release.
In the press release, ELB president Wim van den Hurk stated that the league will continue in 2017. Finally the Dutch Baseball Federation agrees on combination teams and individual teams to participate. The French federation and Czech federation are committed to send combination teams. The intention is to play the 2017 season with 6-8 teams: Munich-Haar Disciples, Regensburg Legionaere, Draci Brno, Amsterdam Baseball, team Prague and a team France. There are still talks ongoing with Rotterdam (with Neptunus as a back bone) and some Italian teams.
