Four Top Teams open Croatian Baseball League Season



In 2008 the Baseball Club ZAGREB ended the two-year reign by KELTEKS KARLOVAC (since last year: OLIMPIJA KARLOVAC) at the top of Croatian Baseball and won the championship. The new season starts with match-ups between the four first-ranked teams this weekend.

Similar to last year ZAGRAB, OLIMPIJA, NADA SSM and VINDIJA will play in the Interliga (against clubs from Serbia, Hungary, Slovakia) during the regular season and they already have secured their spots in the Croatian quarterfinals (best-of-three), which are scheduled to be played in September.

The four remaining playoff participants will be determined in a round-robin format between GAJNICE, SISAK, DONAT, KAPTOL, MEDVEDNICA and VINDI ISO-SPORT. Their regular season will start on the weekend of April 4th and 5th.

After the quarters best-of-five semi-finals will follow. The Croatian finals are being played in a best-of-seven format. In recent years there was a big gap between the four first-mentioned clubs and the others and it will be interesting to see, if this will change this year.
