After a long flight to Amsterdam and a 20 minute bus trip to Haarlem, the NJCAA All-Stars are finally checked into their hotel where they will stay for the next 11 days while participating in the Honkbal Tournament. Practice is scheduled for 4 p.m. today.
Other Notes: Anthony Bemboom and Rahph Rhymes were interviewed by the local Dutch radio station (107.3 FM) from Haarlem, which will be broadcasting all the Honkbal Tournament games. Fans can listen to these broadcasts via this link here, but unfortunately the play-by-play will be in Dutch and the interviews with players will be in English. While checking into the hotel, teams from the Chinese Taipei, Cuba and Netherlands were also checking in. They look to have much older players on their rosters but that was to be expected.
