During the April meetings for the joint CEB/ESF commission the ‘Top Six’ tournament was established.
The tournament, currently working under the name ‘Top 6', will feature the top six teams in each sport. The event will be co-hosted by the joint commission. The inaugural year of the tournament will only feature men’s baseball and women’s softball.
Petra Arends, from the ESF, and Roderick Balk, from the CEB, were named leaders of the Top Six working group. The group will jointly create a combined baseball and softball tournament for 2018.
As soon as tournament regulations are established and approved by the Commission, those requirements will be sent to all European national federations for both sports.
