Vienna Wanderers, represented by Caroline Meriaux, Roland Hörmann and Johannes Godler, informed Collegiate Baseball League Europe that they are pleased to join the league as a host city for its East Division teams. The addition of Vienna is a great development for CBLE, since this beautiful city will add to the attractiveness of our still growing organization.
The Vienna Wanderers homefield, Ballpark Spenadlwiese, will also host the European Championship Qualifier 2015. CBLE’s search for quality ballparks near popular cities already resulted in the addition of Prague to the new founded East Division.
CBLE’s latest expansion team will be named Vienna Emperors. CBLE players and coaches will provide youth clinics during their stay in Vienna. The East Division will play the first round of its schedule in Vienna from July 8 to 10 before travelling to Prague for the second round. The East Division teams will meet the West Division teams from July 19 to 23 in Oosterhout, to determine which teams will play the Championship Game on July 24.
