Snow hindered preseason in Europe last weekend



Bad weather, especially snow, hindered the preseason in Europe this weekend. Many of the games were cancelled or called after a few innings.

Only in Spain and Italy the schedules were fulfilled. Yoel HERNANDEZ got some revenge for his 0-1 loss to Germany at the Olympic Qualifier, when he defeated the Paderborn Untouchables with his Spanish club Sant Boi on Sunday with the exact same result. The U’s are facing Barcelona and Hercules to three more exhibitions this week.

In Italy Montepaschi Grosseto and Fortitudo got easy wins against Riccione and Fiorentina. Lincoln MIKKELSEN and Cody CILLO impressed with solid performances on the mound.

The preseason tournament in Dortmund, Germany was forced to cancel the second day. The host Wanderers stayed undefeated with wins against Bonn and Saarlouis.
