Don't worry, the Netherlands has the Driemteam on their side

Little did we know that there were two baseball teams from the Kingdom of the Netherlands at AT&T Park on Monday night. 

The Driemteam, a Dutch baseball club from Holland, showed up in San Francisco wearing orange sweatshirts and one full-body orange suit. 

It's the third trip to California to see the World Baseball Classic for the Driemteam, who also attended the '06 and '09 Classics. The tickets for this year's Classic were purchased before the Netherlands advanced to the semifinals. 

"They are amazing," said Reinier Spruit, who is wearing the full body suit. "And now in the semifinals, anyone can win. I thought Japan was going to win yesterday actually."
