The Skellefteå Basebollklubb was unusual in that it was located only 200 km from the Arctic Circle. It was far from other teams in Sweden - southern Elitserien teams were 16 hours away. The team still dominated Swedish ball for a period, winning Elitserien titles every year from 1989-1995 and then again in 1999. In 1990 they won their only European trophy, the Pool B version of the European Cup.
