2022 Federation Cup: Brasschaat Braves @ Astros Valencia, a Photo Impression

The championship game never really was a game. Therefore, this team with many (if not all) South- and Central Americans) was simply too strong for the Brasschaat Braves.

In a crazy game, the Brasschaat Braves clinched a spot in the championship game.

This gentleman thought he was more important than the …

At this very hot day, yours truly went to Merchtem to attend a double header between the Brussels Kangaroos and the Merchtem Cats.

2022 European Champions Cup: Parmaclima Repeats as European Champion

In a nail biter, L&D Amsterdam ended at the wrong side of the score. In a game in which the pitching on both sides wasn't great, but good enough to keep the teams in the game, Parma struck in the eighth inning when it turned the tables and turned a Amsterdam lead into a lead …
