...til FINKSTONBALL XVI
Preparations for the Finkstonball XV are in full progress. The field is prepared and last weekend the Athletics had their first Double Header of the Austrian Baseball League against the Vienna Metrostars, who are the defending champion.
Also arrangements for the new youth field have already started. It will be hopefully playable next spring.
For Finkstonball the groundkeeping crew leaded by Lukas Scheicher designed and built our own fixed stage next to the field where bands will perform their open air concerts during the tournament.
|Since last year it is possible to buy t-shirts, caps and a lot of other stuff from the Club, which you might need for a perfect baseball day, at our Athletics Merchandise stand.
Furthermore the baseball shop Bens will be present during the tournament.
If you need something special, please contact him in advance.
|The Baseball Tomorrow Fund (BTF) recently awarded a grant to the Austrian Baseball Federation to build a new youth baseball field at the Athletics Ballpark in Attnang-Puchheim.
The first steps will start in spring 2012 and will be the construction of a playable field with dugouts and should be done by the end of the season.
