You have to dare to take such a title of an article. Yet it is true!
Baseball is in countries like the United States, Japan, South Korea, Chinese Taipei, Cuba and so on perhaps the greatest sport. In our country this is not the case, but since we play very good baseball in the Netherlands, Curaçao, Aruba and all other parts of the Kingdom, the team of the Kingdom just stands among the strongest countries in the world. And if baseball, and the signals do point it out, is at the Olympic Games in Tokyo 2020 Olympic again, we are immediately candidates for a medal. Unique, because that can not be said so often for team sports.
Robert Eenhoorn and Hensley Meulens, baseball icons, have put this world of baseball on the map. How wonderful it is to see, feel and experience that we are proud of what the boys have from all these parts of the Kingdom have achieved and will achieve. Goals as the world championship in 2011 and the semifinals at the World Baseball Classic are achieved. These results were startling and amazing. With all the talent that now rises the future looks very sunny.
The World Port Tournament Baseball may rejoice therefore in a fantastic edition. Topsport to feast. Watching all those talents from all over the world. And yes, how happy we are with the participation of Curaçao! Because we are just as proud of the C as we are of NL. Because Curaçao is part of the world Port Tournament family. Because they are full of conviction and will show you the best of Dushi Korsou.
Amigunan fo’i Kursou sinti na Kas na e WPT Baseball! (Friends of Curaçao feel at home at WPT!)
