The national league baseball team Bonn Capitals have won the German Championship. In the fifth and significant final the team of coach Bradley Roper-Hubbert won 7:5 against the Heidenheim Heideköpfe.

It’s accomplished, the rematch turned out well: The Bonn Capitals have won the German Championship for the first time in the club’s history. In the third attempt, the national league team crowned an excellent season, in which the Caps won 40 matches in a row.

In the significant final in the best-of-five-series the team of coach Bradley Roper-Hubbert won against last year’s winners, the Heidenheim Heidenköpfe 7:5. The foundation for the win was already laid on Saturday, when the Bonn team won 4:2 against the defending champions. Last year, the Heidenköpfe had won the series with 3:2, this year it was time for Bonn’s revenge.

The Heidenheim team did lodge a protest after the fourth match though, meaning the championship shield will not yet be handed over. The protest file will be reviewed by the league officials first.
