Softball ACT is letting people know they’ve got a softball tournament going down:
The best junior male softballer’s in Australia have started to arrive in Canberra and are set to go head-to-head in a battle for the 2014 Under 17 boys’ national softball championship.
Teams from the ACT, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Victoria and Western Australia will be competing for the coveted Arthur Allsopp Shield, named in honour of the first male in history to be inducted into the Australian Softball Federation (now Softball Australia) Hall of Fame.
The tournament swings into action on Sunday, 5 January at the Hawker International Softball Centre and Softball ACT CEO, Matt Morrissey, is hoping that good crowds will be out to support the local team who have been training hard under the watchful eye of head coach, Phillip (Pip) Powell.
“Pip has really gone back to basics with this team and has been working on fundamental skills that will benefit the players in the current championship, but more importantly will set the foundation for future championships so that the ACT can continue its dominance at the open men’s level.
