We are happy to announce that registration for the 2024 Baseball Summer Classic will start today January 5th at 20.00 CET

This year’s event will be held from Tuesday, July 23rd until Saturday, July 27th at the Neptunus baseball grounds in Rotterdam (NL).

Last year, we delved deep into organizing our second big draft baseball tournament. Despite weeks of rain, — don’t ask how — we managed to pull it off and get most of the games played. All our volunteers were completely drained after all the hard work, but the smiling faces at the end of the week made it worth all the effort. And what an experience it was, once again! With roughly 200 participants, 15 nationalities, 24 coaches, 16 umpires, and 35 volunteers, we had loads of fun, excitement, and an unforgettable week at the second ‘Baseball Culture Summer Classic ’23.’ No doubt, 2024 is going to be even better with all the experience we have under our belt.

Will you be there with us to create some unforgettable memories? We are anxious to set the bar even higher for this year’s ‘Dia de los Muertos ‘-themed tournament.


We are aiming for 5 age categories:

U12 Aluminum league
U14 Aluminum league
U16 Alu/Wood/composite league
U18 Alu/Wood/composite league
U23 Alu/Wood/composite league

For your admittance fee, we provide:

-The first 50 players who sign up (and pay) for the tournament get a free BC tournament hoodie.
