2. Baseball-Bundesliga 2017 - 2. Baseball-Bundesliga 2017

The 2nd Bundesliga baseball 2017 was the first season after a comprehensive league reform in which the 2nd Bundesliga was combined with the regional leagues. [1] As a result, the number of teams from 16 to 42 and the two divisions North and South increased were divided into three groups. [1] [2] Due to geographical considerations, the new groups had between five and nine teams. [3]

Groups with seven or more teams played a double header with one game over nine and one over seven innings in a round-trip round. Since they have fewer than seven teams, the Northeast group played an additional "first round". From the top ranked teams eligible for promotion in the groups in a division, those interested in promotion determined a promoted player in play-offs .

The following 42 teams took part in the 2017 season, divided into the two divisions North and South. [2] As their courses did not meet the requirements for the 2. Bundesliga, the Hünstetten Storm wore their home games at Mainz [4] and the Kaiserslautern Bears always went away to. [5]

North

In the north-west group, Bonn and Paderborn were not eligible for promotion, which is why Neunkirchen was granted promotion rights as third place. Thus Neunkirchen, the Bremen Dockers as the first place in the group North and the Berlin Flamingos as the first place in the group Northeast in a group of three for the promotion. Each team played a double header against the other two over 9 innings each, with each team playing once at home and once away. The first placed in this group rose directly, the second placed played the relegation against the last placed in the play-downs of the 1st Bundesliga North.
