...IT'S BASEBALL (everything else) SUCKS; AND THOSE MOUNTAINS ARE PRETTY SWEET, TOO

Dramatic, mountain backdrops and a friendly populace make a baseball journey to the most beautiful settings of Austria worthwhile. The Austria Baseball League has eight teams scattered around the small European country, which borders Germany and the Czech Republic. The sport has a strong, small niche following in a country where winter sports like skiing and snowboarding rule.
 

You can learn more about baseball in Austria in World in a Ballpark: Baseball Goes Global, which is available for purchase at the Buy Joe's Guides page.

...UNTIL I GOT TO AUSTRIA AND ENJOYED ONE AFTER A BALLGAME THANKS TO THIS INSPIRATION

Canadian coaches and players, along with some U.S. and Japanese influence, have helped to improve baseball in Austria. At least two players on each team in Austria's top league could play college ball in the U.S. In fact, a few Austrians have played in U.S. college programs.
