The European baseball season is in full swing and numerous clubs on the old continent have raced out the gates with impressive winning streaks.

Czech powerhouse Draci Brno has opened the 2017 campaign with nine consecutive wins, while the Heidenheim Heidekoepfe (8-0) is unbeaten and looking like the team to beat in the German Baseball-Bundesliga.

The Rouen Huskies (8-0) are heavy favorites to claim another French Division 1 title this season, and T&A San Marino (4-0) is the lone unbeaten squad in the Italian Baseball League.

Several of Europe’s top baseball teams – UnipolSai Bologna, Angel Service Nettuno, L&D Amsterdam and the Tenerife Marlins – all have just one setback on their cards.

The following results are from the top baseball leagues in Europe from April 20-23.
