Finnish baseball

Finnish baseball, known as our national game, is a variation of the American game as well as an old Finnish racket game called “king ball”. It is very popular especially in the eastern Finland. Even those who do not play the game know it in our country because it is traditionally played in PE classes at the Finnish elementary school. The main series for men and women are called “Superpesis” (“pesis”= a nickname or a spoken language form for “pesäpallo”, baseball). The medal games are played in September.
