    Netherlands beat Japan must be more encouragement for European Baseball. Yes it was only one run and in extra innings but the Netherlands can compete with the best and must represent the standard to which European Baseball,as a whole,must strive to achieve. baseball is a volatile sport,in that games can change very quickly but the Dutch have been competing at World level for many years now.
    Europe needs a major league equivalent,maybe as as part of the Major League farm system,to begin with. It would need rules that guarantee that a minimum numbers of players were born in Europe and that a minimum number must be on the field at any one time, thus providing encouragement to the European players of the future. In time the Americans players and administrators would withdraw leaving a European league that could look after and sustain itself. Using the above format, baseball could be spread all across Europe (both West and East) and the interest and development would make it easier for the east to catch up with their western neighbours,which would benefit everybody.
