Weekend is over. Field is cleaned, covered, no sign of biggest club tournament was there on Saturday still. Tournament which began three years ago as few friendly matches between teams willing to play few games before the end of the season…
Original schedule promised three days of good baseball by four Czech and four Slovak teams. But weather decided differently, even we were expecting that a little, but still hoping to play all eighteen scheduled games. Two thirds was played, which is by unpredictable fall weather a success.

Last game in each group selected rankings for semi-final and final standing games. But we had no clue, that these results will select final standings of the tournament.
Final standing games were scheduled for Sunday (but without Pelikans Bučovice and Skokani Olomouc B, as these teams decided to head home early). Forecast was looking good on Sunday morning, but heavy rain decided – no games. This was the moment where scorers and statistics determined winners of individual awards and teams positioning.
