For the second time, the Baltic Softball Open will be played in Skövde, Sweden, on June 13th to 14th with a support of the ESF. Last year two national teams (Denmark and Sweden) participated with both men's fastpitch and women's fastpitch.

This year, Norway will battle against Sweden in Men's fastpitch, while the women's fastpitch tournament will feature four national teams - Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Lithuania.

This marks the first time since the Nordic Championships in 2001 that a Norwegian women's team will be playing an international tournament, and after Sweden made it's comeback in men's softball last year, after 36 years, it is now time for Norway to play an international tournament in men's fastpitch softball for the first time.
