"In 1973, four clubs were established in the Croatian coastal town of Split due to 'intense contact with . . . Italian clubs,' wrote Roger C. Panaye."

Josh Chetwynd, Baseball in Europe (McFarland, 2008), page 187. Chetwynd here references Roger C. Panaye, European Amateur Baseball: 25 Years. He cites another source as claiming that the first Split club, Nada, formed in 1974.

Split is about 150 miles W of Sarajevo on the Adriatic.
