On Sunday, August 24, the 29th Olympic Games came to an end with an impressive Closing Ceremony. In 16 days, 302 gold medals were handed out, including seven to Dutch athletes. The Dutch Olympic Team won with 16 medals. With the conclusion of the Beijing Games, the focus is now on the London Games in 2012. Unfortunately, baseball and softball are not included in that Games. So, it's now up to all of us to show that baseball and softball belong to the Olympics and we have to work for reinstatement for the 2016 Olympic Games! The Dutch Olympic Team travels back home on Monday.

Goodbye Japan, Hello China
On Tuesday-evening, the Dutch Olympic Softball Team arrived safely at Beijing after the flight from Narita in Japan. After getting their accreditation and ID cards, the team went on to the Olympic Village. The Dutch Team will return to the field on Wednesday, as it now has some almost daily practices scheduled to get familiar with the stadium, but also to remain in shape.

On that day, the Dutch squad won the thrilling final of the Olympic Qualifying Tournament against host Italy, 3-2, needing an extra inning to do so. With Italy batting, runners on first and third base and two outs, a line drive towards Lynn Geertman at second base made an end to this more than exciting game. Players and staff erupted in celebration as the Dutch National Softball Team qualified for the Olympic Games 2008, which are being held August 6-24 this year in Chinese capital Beijing.

The Dutch Olympic Softball Team will travel twice to the United States of America, bringing them to the San Francisco-Bay Area, Hawaii, Philadelphia, Rockford (Illinois) and Akron (Ohio), to play at least 30 games, including 12 against professional softball teams. In May, the team will play in the Elite Tournament on a yet to be named site in the Netherlands, playing in front of a home crowd. In July, the team will play more games on home soil, but also in Japan. There, the team not only will have its final preparations for the Olympics in August, but also the 15 players for the definitive roster will be determined and named.
2008 will be an exciting and intense year for everyone involved, but it also will be a year in which experiences and new impressions will be gained. A year in which the players and staff, who last year won the Olympic Qualifier can enjoy from their accomplishments. A year, which will be a highlight in Dutch softball history!
This site is for you all, we hope you will support us with your enthousiasm by not only attending and enjoying our games, but also stimulate everyone involved to get the best possible result.
