Holland Hoists Honkbal Honors
It will come as no secret to loyal reader(s) of this column that I enjoy using the word “honkbal” whenever I can and I will go to great lengths to include the Dutch term for baseball at any and every opportunity.
And there can be no greater opportunity than the one which has recently presented itself as the Netherlands emerged victorious in this year’s Baseball World Cup held in Panama City, Panama by defeating Cuba 2-1 in the final.
It is the first time a European team has won the championship since 1938.
Well done Oranje!
