A new attempt to start a professional baseball league in Europe – a hangout for Dutch baseball – MLB Sports

Suddenly, several tweets came up about the newly formed European professional baseball league. The new league, dubbed the European Professional Baseball Super League (ESLB for short), is in its infancy. We don’t have much information yet.

According to the website eslb.proThere are 6 teams, not in areas where baseball is very popular. Teams will be located in England (Bath), France (Paris), Italy, Portugal and Spain. Of course, Italy is still a hotspot for baseball in Europe, and the French team will be located in the Paris area, where baseball is also played. However, in general, leagues take risks by placing teams in areas where baseball is less popular.

On December 15th, the league tweeted about the tryouts you can subscribe to.

Below are the logos of the six teams that are set to start playing at ESLB.

The fact is that the websites of these clubs aren’t working yet. According to the website, there is cooperation with the Atlantic League, Andalusian Baseball Federation, Indian Baseball Federation, and Venezuelan Umpire Camp.

It is not yet known how the CEB (Confederation of European Baseball) will behave. Nowadays, its governing body of European baseball has done everything to prevent the success of the baseball EuroLeague.

So far, most of Twitter’s announcements about the new league have raised more questions than answers. The league is scheduled to start on March 11, 2021.
