Decos EHS is ready to defend its European title in Liberec, Czech Republic the coming week. Decos EHS won the European title last year in their hometown Haarlem, The Netherlands.
We have been able to add some great players to our roster. Due to the injury of Erik Zomerdijk and the absence of Kerim Bettio we had to add a few pick up players (4 allowed this year). We are very proud to have added pitcher Sebastian Gervasutti (Argentina, The Farm), Czech National team catcher David Mertl and Patrick Kolkus, (Czech Republic, the first European player to make the ISC All World Team). Also back from the USA is Czech National Team player Jonas Mach who played for us in the Dutch competition aswell.
