He then pitched for Belgium in the 2021 European Championship. The teenager made two brief appearances. He closed out a 14-3 loss to Bronze Medalist Italy, relieving Lino Ballardini and retiring former minor leaguer Ernesto Liberatore on a grounder. Against Great Britain, he replaced Brendan Verspreet in the 8th with a 8-3 deficit. He walked Zach Stroman, then Nateshon Thomas hit into a force. Jose Larrinaga relieved and let the inherited run score; somehow, Hendrickx wound up taking the decision in what wound up a 12-11 loss. [6]
