Australian U17 Softball Championships
5th – 11th January 2019
Adelaide, SA

The boys team won the National Softball Championship in a thrilling encounter over NSW, after losing all 4 previous round games against NSW. The Queenslanders pulled out an epic play in the bottom of the 6th inning, Byron Humble scored on a wild pitch to even up the score, and as the New South Wales boys scrambled to recover, Josh Routledge ran to third and then home giving the Maroon boys a 6-5 lead. Caleb Vandegriendt’s pitching was strong enough to close out the top of the 7th inning with no runs from NSW, giving Queensland the championship.
