Bob Bergkamp new President of Dutch Federation



The Dutch Baseball and Softball Federation (KNBSB) has elected the former umpire Bob Bergkamp as new president at a KNBSB meeting in Nieuwegein according to Honkbalsite.com. He succeeds Ruud van Zetten, who resigned together with other board members at the beginning of November due to a conflict with the appeal board.

Bergkamp will be joined at the top of the federation by Frits Mulder, Caroline Theunissen, Ruurd Koopmans and Marcel Visser. Two more board members will be named later, including the treasurer. An interim committee of Mulder, Hans Zonneveld and Leo Turret had led the KNBSB since Van Zetten stepped down.

The 54-year-old Bergkamp was a pitcher during a seven-year active career with the Haarlem-based club DSS. He was an Umpire in the Dutch Hoofdklasse between 1988 and 1996, winning Umpire of the year awards in 1993 and 1994. He also umpired internationally for eight years. Since 2007 he has been working in the city government of Breda. Within the KNBSB he was an alternate member of the appeal committee since March 2009.
