The Summer League organization continues

Despite the current situation in Europe, we want to ensure you all fans, especially registered players and confirmed coaches, that we are continue in the organization of the second Euro Baseball Tour. We strongly believe that the COVID-19 pandemic will weaken in Europe and that the Czech government will allow us to organize the Summer League fully and that it will open borders for our foreign players.

We are currently waiting for the end of April, when the next plan to release the restrictions that the Czech nation is facing now should be presented. For this reason, we have not yet implemented the planned players draft, nor have we sent any registered information to any registered players.

We are very pleased with your interest in the EBT Camp, given the current situation, we may not be able to use the gyms in the baseball area to accommodate players. However, we are working on an alternative solution so that we can implement EBT Camp within the framework of the expected rules.

Thank you for your patronage and we will provide you with more information early in May.

I přes současnou situaci, která v Evropě panuje chceme všechny příznivce, především registrované hráče a potvrzené kauče ujistit, že organizace druhého ročníku Euro Baseball Tour pokračuje. Pevně věříme, že pandemie COVID-19 bude v Evropě slábnout a že česká vláda nám umožní letní ligu zorganizovat v plné míře a že otevře hranice i pro naše zahraniční hráče.

V současné době čekáme na konec dubna, kdy by mělo dojít k prezentaci dalšího plánu uvolnění omezení se kterými se český národ nyní potýká. I proto jsme doposud nezrealizovali plánovaný draft hráčů, ani jsme registrovaným hráčům neposílali žádné další informace.

Jsme velice potěšeni Vaším zájmem o EBT Camp, vzhledem k současné situace zřejmě nebudeme moci využít tělocvičny v baseballovém areálu k ubytování hráčů. Pracujeme však na alternativním řešení, abychom EBT Camp mohli zrealizovat v rámci očekávaných pravidel.

Děkujeme Vám za přízeň a zkraje května Vám poskytneme další informace.

Partnership with New Era

We are really excited to inform you, that we started cooperation with the world cap leader New Era company ! New Era company is represented in Czech market by snapbacks.cz company and we are really happy for their support for 2020 edition. Because of limited time, players will not wear New Era caps this year, but for upcoming years we are planning together with New Era to have for all registered players their own EBT New Era cap !

Thank you very much to snapbacks.cz for their support again and looking forward for upcoming and extended cooperation !

Registration status

However we are not at the end of planned EBT registration end date, we have already full list of registered players in U13 category, so we accepting registration of players for U13 category, but these players are placed into waiting list and in case that some of already registered players will withdraw from EBT, will be immediately replaced by player on waiting list in registration date order.

In U15 category we have the last 1 free spots and then we will start with the same approach like with U13 category, which is opening waiting list. Because there is really limited interest about U18 category, we will move all registered U18 players into U15 category if they will wish and then close registration for U18 category. But we will still wait till end of January if situation will not be changed.

Slowly but it starting registration to U11 category. We want to promote this category now and our goal is to build at least 2 or 3 teams in this category and have this category in EBT 2020.
