2016 European Championships Pool "A"
Amsterdam (Hoofddorp), The Netherlands Sep. 9-18, 2016
One could not have asked for better baseball weather than the baseball Gods gave for this tournament. The best in 150 years for this time of the year according to the local residents although we were hard-pressed to find anyone that age to verify the claim.
Hellas was also hard-pressed to remain in Pool "A". Our 1-6 record relegated us to Pool "B" along with Russia whom Hellas beat 3-1 in our 2nd last game of the tournament behind the stellar complete game, 6 hitter 9 strikeout pitching performance by Jonathan Kountis and timely hitting of Dimitri Kourtis who drove in 2 runs.
Hellas now needs to place 1st at the 2017 Pool "B" Championships in Belgrade, Serbia July 24-30 in order to be included in the 2018 European Pool "A" Championships Pool again and have a chance at qualifying for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
