No new edition of the Haarlem Honkbalweek by financial problems
The Haarlem Honkbalweek is not more organized. The organization is short on cash to the biannual top tournament.
The 28th and last edition was in July 2016. The next would be in 2018, but that is definitively deleted.
“With much reluctance, it was decided that, after 55 years is not financially more responsible is a Honkbalweek to organize,” said a statement from the Foundation Honkbalweek.
The first time that the Honkbalweek was held in 1961. From 1972 it was a biennial tournament in the even years. The Dutch team was a regular participant at the event. Orange won this summer, the latest edition.
The Foundation Honkbalweek writes that the economic crisis of the past editions was noticeable during the collection of the sponsor money.
“Of the announced recovery of the economy has the Honkbalweek not noticed much. The carefully planned post sponsor money is not realized.”
