The organizers of the Haarlemse Honkbalweek have added a pair of baseball power houses to the 2012 lineup of the International Baseball Tournament. Cuba and Puerto Rico confirmed their participation for the Haarlem Baseball Week, which will be played from July 13 to 22, 2012. The 26 edition of the tourney will also see the Dutch National Team, Taiwan and Japan. While Cuba is basically coming every year to the Netherlands, Puerto Rico’s visit is only the second visit overall since their lone HHW experience in 1992. First contact between the organizers and the team was established during the IBAF Baseball World Cup in Panama last October.
