Finkstonball Baseball – fully booked for 2020

Again our Baseball edition of Finkstonball was “sold out” within days. Allthough we have a waiting list in order to fill up a spot for unexpected cancellations the chances are small we can offer you a spot for this years tournament.

We would like to thank all teams showing interest in the tournament. We are already discussing to stock up on teams for 2021 without cutting games and the level of play. Stay tuned for an update later this year! If you didn´t manage to get a spot with your team we would be glad to host you as fan and visitor!
