French Division I Scores and Standings Update


With three more weeks left in the French Division I League, the Rouen Huskies are still leading the league. The real fight will be for the final few spots in the playoffs. Three teams are in striking distance of the final two playoff spots with the final week setting up to be a showdown for the final spot.

The top six teams will advance to the playoffs. Currently the final two spots are occupied by Beaucaire Chevaliers (9-13) and the Savigny Lions (8-14). But just a game off the pace is Stade Toulouse (7-15). The final weekend series will feature the Savigny Lions and the Stade Toulouse which might determine who makes it in and who goes home.

That is big because the final two teams have to play in the play down series with the loser of that series will have to play the winner of the Division II League to determine who will play in the top league in 2014.

France: Savigny Lions Split with Rouen Huskies


FRANCE – Rouen reliever Maxime Lefevre walked Pierrick Lemestre in the 10th to force in the go-ahead run, and the Savigny Lions upset the Huskies 12-11 Sunday in the French Baseball League.

Savigny (7-8), which lost the front end of the twinbill 7-1, fell behind by four runs before plating scores in each of the final six frames to salvage an improbable split with the seven-time reigning league title-holder.

Christopher Morel went 4-for-5 with a pair of RBIs and reliever Enrique Trinidad (1-0) collected the final three outs to get the win.

Paris University Club knocked off the Pessac Panthers twice. Frederic Mouchet (1-0) scattered a run and six hits with five strikeouts in a complete game effort to lead PUC to a 12-1 win in the first contest.

France: Senart Inaugurates New Stadium


Templiers Senart with new Ballpark, which meets international standards

Another new international baseball stadium was inaugurated in Europe on Wednesday. After new ballparks were built in Brest (Belarus), Mainz (Germany), Sundbyberg (Sweden) and Parma (Italy) in recent years, a new field was inaugurated in Senart (France) a couple of kilometers south of Paris, raising the prospects for more elite level baseball events in France and Europe.

Construction of the field began last July and was completed just in time for the start of the 2012 baseball season.

“This facility just outside Paris will add some very interesting hosting possibilities and development projects for European Baseball,” said International Baseball Federation president, Riccardo Fraccari, via telephone from Havana, Cuba.

“We are very encouraged by the momentum of baseball in France and Europe in general, as more and more countries are competing on baseball’s world stage and facilities like this will help continue elevating the skill level and standards of players in Europe.” Fraccari continued.

The new baseball stadium, which fulfills all international standards, features a state of the art clubhouse with a bar, a synthetic playing surface, a modern lightning system, bullpens and covered batting cages. There are also plans to incorporate a regional training center in the area to further strengthen the development of baseball in France and Europe on the whole.

“Our hats  go off to our colleagues at the French Baseball and Softball Federation for this world-class venue and their commitment to the development of the game in their country and beyond,” Fraccari noted.

Didier Seminet and Jean-Christophe Tiné of the French Baseball and Softball Federation attended the inauguration ceremony on Wednesday among numerous local dignitaries. With this new venue, France is expected to host European and International tournaments in Senart in the future.

France: Senart Templiers Move into Second Place Behind Rouen


FRANCE – Chris Mezguer outdueled fellow import pitcher James Murrey in a low-scoring matchup Sunday, and the Rouen Huskies claimed a narrow 1-0 victory over Paris University Club in the first part of a French Baseball League twinbill.
