Yes, you read that right! What an amazing opportunity to be had in Finland! If you've moved here from another country and wanted to play the game you love, it can be done!
The Helsinki Mets are part of a multi-country baseball league in Finland. Currently, the league is comprised of six teams. In Finland the Mets, Expos, Puumat, Tigers, and Pirates. And making the sixth team, the Panthers from Estonia!
The country already has a national version of their own baseball (called Pesäpallo) game so getting six teams together for this playstyle is no small feat.
Would you like to play with us? Or just know more about the league here? What's involved? Any questions you have for us, fill out the contact form below.
The Mets baseball club started in 2012 and played two seasons in the Suomi-sarja league (now Fat Lizard league), winning the Championship in 2013.
The team has participated in Finland’s top league, SM-sarja, since 2014 and won their first SM Championship in 2018.
The Mets club also has a farm team, the Myllypuro Tornadoes, which is the recreational and development team for the Mets.
The players enjoy friendships that extend beyond team events and playing baseball during the summer. Quite a few of them enjoy Super Bowl parties, going out for drinks, or simply hanging out at each others houses watching MLB.
Have some questions about starting? Whatever is on your mind, don't hesitate to ask. Fill this form out and we'll get back to you asap.
Without the sponsorships from these great companies, we wouldn't be able to enjoy our sport as much as we do.
Thank you very much!
