This Baseball Field in Finland Has a River

It would be tremendously fun if American baseball fields had rivers, too–especially if they ran through the field in order to create additional obstacles.

In this case, the river is simply a natural feature of the location of the field in Finland. The stadium of the town of Vimpeli, SB Nation reports, fills a small island in the middle of a river. It may be necessary for the outfielders to dive into the river to catch the ball and there are cameras set up to catch the amphibious action.

Strictly speaking, they aren’t playing baseball. They’re playing pesäpallo, a sport similar to baseball. The primary difference is that the pitcher stands next to the batter and tosses the ball straight up into the air. I don’t know if river obstacles are standard.
