The Baseball Week: International baseball event in the Netherlands.

The tournament was played in Haarlem and always took place in the summer in even years. In the odd years, the World Port Tournament is played in Rotterdam. The first Haarlem Baseball Week was held on the ‘Badmintonpad’. The following editions were held at the Pim Mulier Stadion.

Since the start, it was by definition the invitation tournament where the Dutch baseball team appeared and played against foreign teams. In the early years, these were mainly teams from neighbouring countries and army teams of American soldiers who were stationed in the Netherlands, Germany and England. In later years other national teams were invited as well as American college teams. Since 1998, the tournament was only on an invitation for national teams.

The Dutch baseball team has won the tournament four times (in 2004, 2006, 2010 and 2016). In December 2016 the end of the Haarlem Baseball Week was announced, but now the Baseball Week Haarlem is working hard on the 29th edition that will take place from 13 to 22 July at the Pim Mulier Stadium.
