FC Barcelona is one of the top soccer teams in Spain. The organization also fielded teams in many other sports, including baseball. The FC Barcelona baseball team captured the Spanish baseball crown in 1946, 1947, 1956 and 2011. They won one of the two 2008 European Cups, the first European Cup Gold Medal for a Spanish club since 1967. In 2011, FC Barcelona announced it was eliminating most of its minority sports, including baseball, due to financial problems. Less than a month after the announcement, the team clinched its first title in 55 years. They were replaced by CB Barcelona.
