Next to several players that have played for the team before, there are some that are new.
For example, Jayden Gonesh (pitcher), Yurdion Martie (catcher) and Sheadion Jamanika (1B). All three playing with Silicon Storks and have hoofdklasse experience.

Manager de Jong also added several players with college experience. For example Dave Janssen and Julian Rip. It is really sad that Luuk ter Beek got injured due to an accident earlier this week, otherwise the team would have had a very reliable pitcher in him.

The Kingdom of the Netherlands will play in Group B with Belgium, Germany and Ukraine as opponents. The top two finishers will advance to the semi-finals and the two teams that will make the final will earn a ticket for the 2022 U23 World Championship.

The roster contains the following names:

It is surprising to see that the core of the team does not come from clubs like Curaçao Neptunus or L&D Amsterdam Pirates. There is a big variety of players. Oosterhout Twins sends the most players: seven. For the rest the Hoofdklasse clubs are rather evenly represented.
