Austria: 2013 Playoffs Start Friday

The playoffs get going this coming weekend in the Austrian Baseball League. The league finished its play this past weekend when the Vienna Neustadt Diving Ducks and the Dornbirn Indians played the final two games.

With a sweep the Indians would have finished first in the standings, but that wasn’t meant to be. The Diving Ducks and Indians split the weekend series which resulted in a three-way tie for first place, while the Diving Ducks took the last spot in the playoffs.
