What is Aarhus Athletics?
-Aarhus Athletics is a team of Latin American baseball players playing in the Danish Championship League. Most of the players on the team started playing Baseball in the red “Århus”-uniforms, but wanted their own team. They formed a new association/club called “Aarhus Athletics Baseball Club” and by that Aarhus had two Baseball Teams and two Baseball Clubs. After two years apart, the board of Århus Baseball Softball Klub and Aarhus Athletics Baseball Club decided to join forces and merged the two clubs. Aarhus Athletics is now a Baseball team within the organization of Århus Baseball Softball Klub. Read more here
