Congratulations to David Herrmann (Y13) who represented Switzerland in two baseball tournaments over the summer break. The first tournament was at the start of July in Zürich, called the Alpine Cup. This was played against adults, where the team lost every game, although with two very close losses.
The second tournament was the U23 European Championship Qualifier in Bratislava. The Swiss team started with wins against Austria (8:7) and Belarus (21:0), followed by losses against the Ukraine and Croatia, ending pool play in third place. Their final game was against Poland, the third place from the other group, to see who would end 5th, however, they unfortunately lost this game, finishing 6th out of the 10 teams competing. David’s next major tournament will be the U18 European Championship Qualifiers next summer and then hopefully the U23 European Championship Qualifiers in the summer of 2020.
