Stuttgart Reds announce Palomino European Zone Championships teams

The Stuttgart Reds of Stuttgart, Germany, the tournament host of the 2019 Palomino European Zone Championships, have confirmed that the tournament's field of teams has been set.

Besides host Stuttgart (Germany) and last year’s winner Paris University Club (France), the participating teams will include national teams from Poland, Switzerland and Belgium, a select team from the Netherlands and club teams from Paderborn (Untouchables), Germany and London (Mets), Great Britain. The tournament, which will consist of 20 games, will be played May 1-5. Each team will play five, seven-inning games. The winner will advance, for the first time, to the 2019 Palomino World Series in Laredo, Texas in August.  

“We are very proud, we could convince the deciding committee of PONY about the quality of European baseball," said Tournament Chairman André Fink. "Thanks to the successful tournament in 2018 and the Netherlands representing Europe during 2018 Pony and Colt World Series so well, the PONY board of directors decided positively. We have had more than twice as many applications for this tournament than we could handle, which proves the assumption of Jan Bagin, PONY European Zone Director, that the interest in tournaments of the PONY organization and especially for this age group is growing significantly in Europe."

Participating teams confirmed:

London Mets (GBR)

Paris University Club (FRA)

Swiss National Team (CHE)

Belgium National Team (BEL)

Netherlands United (NED)

Poland National Team (POL)

Paderborn Untouchables (GER)
