The GB Senior Baseball Team posted wins over Croatia and Greece in the relegation playoffs at the European Baseball Championships in Holland last week to finish in ninth place and secure their status as a European Championship team for the next two years.
The GB Baseball Team was coasting along with a 4-0 lead over Russia after five innings on Tuesday in the main stadium at Hoofddorp in their final first round pool game at the European Baseball Championship. But then the game blew up in GB’s faces.
The GB Baseball Team dug themselves magnificently out of a 5-0 deficit against Sweden on Monday afternoon, came back from another run behind to tie the score in the 10th inning – and then lost the game in the 11th inning to go 0-4 in the European Championship.
