Trips to Europe for individual high school ballplayers will be scheduled annually.  For an example of such a trip, click 2011 High School Trip.
 
Custom trips can be arranged for high school teams and summer travel teams.  Ideas for such trips include the following:
  • England/Scotland - Summer trip with visits to London, Stonehenge, Cambridge, Edinburgh and St. Andrews, and with possible games against the Great Britain Junior National Team and appropriate club teams.
  • France/Germany - Summer trip with visits to Paris, Normandy, the Alps and Munich and with possible games against the French and German Junior National Teams and appropriate club teams.
  • Italy/Croatia - Spring or Summer trip with visits to Florence, Venice, Dubrovnik and Zagreb and with possible games against the Italian and Croatian Junior National Teams and appropriate club teams.

College Trips

Custom trips can be arranged for college teams and summer travel teams, with actual destinations within Europe linked carefully to the quality of opposing teams available for competition.  Typical opponents will include U21, U23 and Senior National Teams, as well as high-level club teams.  Among the itineraries possible are those listed under "High School Trips" above.  Additionally, OWB can arrange trips to locations with indoor facilities that will enable teams to get productive baseball work done in the event of inclement weather.
 
Custom trips can be arranged for individual ballplayers, as well as small groups, with the opportunity to practice and possibly play league games with high-level club teams.  Such opportunities can be provided in many different European countries.
 
Adult Trips
 
Custom trips can be arranged for men's teams, with opportunities throughout Europe.  Selection of opposing teams will depend on the trip destinations desired, as well as on the age, ability level and desires of the traveling team.  For example, if the emphasis of the traveling team is on competitive games, opposing teams may include U23 and Senior National Teams, as well as high-level club teams.  But, if the emphasis of the traveling team is on recreation, lower-level club team opponents can be arranged.  Ideas for trips include the following:
  • Intro to Europe - Family-friendly summer trip with visits to major European cities such as London, Paris, Amsterdam, etc., and with games against club teams in various locations.  
  • Baseball and Oktoberfest - Late September trip with games against German, Austrian and/or Czech club teams, with visits to Czech and German breweries and, of course, Oktoberfest in Munich.

Custom trips can be arranged for individual ballplayers, as well as small groups, with the opportunity to practice and possibly play league games with appropriate-level club teams.  Such opportunities can be provided in many different European countries.  One idea for such a trip is the following:
