One country I am dying to visit is Austria.
My sister-in-law went to high school there. I’ve been fascinated with so many photos of travelers visiting. Everything I have read and heard about it makes it seem like an amazing place to me. The history, scenery, people, food, and beer really interest me. So how could you add all of this together and package it to make it even more attractive? Throw in a baseball tournament!
That’s exactly what they have done in Attnang-Puchheim with the Finkstonball Tournament each year.
Each summer they host a weekend long baseball tournament that is also paired with a music festival.
The dates for 2013 have been announced, and I am going to try to make it next year on my European trip, at least that is the plan right now.
For 15 years, the fine folks here have been putting on the tournament. Over 2000 players from more than 80 teams in 19 different countries have played here.
To me it doesn’t get much better than this when you add up the baseball, the location, and the people.
Have you been before? Or would you like to go? Let me know what you think. I’d love to hear some feedback.
The dates for 2013 are May 18th – 20th.
