Baseball Australia is pleased to announce the final roster for the Australian Women’s A Roo Development team that will compete in the Asia Insurance Phoenix Cup, Hong Kong, February 19 to 22.
The 2016 International Women’s Baseball Tournament will see the Australian’s up against some baseball powerhouses of the Asia Pacific region, including China, Guam, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan and tournament hosts, Hong Kong, as they battle it out for the newly designed Defenders Cup.
Phoenix Cup Head Coach Lisa Norrie, Assistant Coaches Ashleigh Ross and Sharon Moss and
Baseball Australia High Performance staff, utilised the recent National Youth Women's Championship to make final roster selections.
" This years Phoenix Cup team is fairly young in comparison to past teams, however the level of talent and ability that exists in this team is really exciting. The opportunity for these girls to go overseas and play in an open women's international event doesn't come around very often, we are lucky to be able to use the Phoenix Cup to develop the girls from such a young age"
2016 Phoenix Cup Head Coach Lisa Norrie.
The Australian roster boasts the 2016 National Youth Women’s Golden Glove, Golden Arm and Tournament MVP winners, as well as seven returning Bronze Medallists from last year’s tournament
