Lars Huijer to Heidenheim Heideköpfe

Much to many Dutch baseball fans’ surprise, starting pitcher Lars Huijer has decided to finish the 2020 season with the Heidenheim Heideköpfe of the 1. Bundesliga in Germany.

Yesterday, the Heideköpfe mentioned the “acquisition” of the Dutch starter on their Facebook page. In his debut vs the Regensburg Legionäre, Huijer pitched six innings in which he allowed three runs (one earned) on eight hits and struck out eight.

Some additional news was written by local Dutch newspaper Haarlems Dagblad. According to the newspaper, thanks to several turns of events among which some private issues, Lars didn’t like it to pitch for Hoofddorp Pioniers anymore.

Hoofddorp Pioniers and Huijer agreed on meeting again at the end of the season to see if the air between the two can be cleared.

For now, Huijer will travel from Hoofddorp to Heidenheim every weekend. Quite a daunting task. One could think why Huijer has opted for Heidenheim as there are other clubs closer to the Dutch border. But it is likely that the other Dutchie on the team, Mike Bolsenbroek, convinced Lars to join him.

For now, Lars is a welcome addition for the Heidenheim Heideköpfe as the team is in a heated fight with the Regensburg Legionäre for first place. Both teams have won nine games and lost one. As both teams will face one of the weakest opponents in their division next weekend, there is a big chance that they will remain tied for first place.
