“We were supposed to hold the first Champions Cup in Ostrava a year ago, but the European Baseball Confederation (CEB) postponed the tournament due to the global pandemic,” explained Radim Kepák, president of Arrows Ostrava.
To date, the best results of Czech baseball players in the Champions Cup are the two third places of the Brno Dragons from 1998 and 2004. Brno was also the last time one of the Champions Cup groups was played on the territory of the Czech Republic (2014).
