Sixteen teams to play the Baseball5 European Championship 2023

Sixteen teams from across Europe will participate in the Baseball5 European Championship. The event is set to take place in November in Lithuania.

The 2023 one will be the second Baseball5 European Championship, with the first edition having taken place in 2020. Sixteen teams will play for the title of European Champion and to qualify for the next WBSC Baseball5 World Cup.

The sixteen teams participating in this year's championship are Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czechia, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Netherlands, Romania, and Ukraine.

The ultimate winner of the tournament will be crowned the European Champion and earn the right to represent Europe in the Baseball5 World Cup 2024 in Hong Kong.

France was the winner of the inaugural edition of the Baseball5 European Championship in 2020, followed by Lithuania in second place. The French team is expected to be one of the favorite for this year's tournament, given their previous success in the event. However, there are several other strong teams in the mix, including Lithuania and the Netherlands, that will be looking to secure their place in the World Cup.

The Baseball5 European Championship 2023, awarded to Lithuania, will be played in the city of Druskininkai in the Lithuanian Sports Complex. This is the second time the event will take place in the Baltic country: the inaugural Baseball5 European Championship took place in Vilnius in 2020.
