The Dutch national baseball team clinched the European title on Sunday with a 3-2 win over Spain in Hoofddorp.

It was the 22nd time the Dutch have taken the title in the 31-year history of the event. Italy claimed the bronze.

Oranje competes under the name ‘Kingdom of the Netherlands’ in baseball to reflect the fact that so many of the players come from the Dutch Caribbean.
