The Aussie Spirit are playing the Japan Toyota Red Terriers professional women’s team in a seven-game series at Blacktown International Sportspark. The second game of the series, Friday 19 February at 7:00pm, will be streamed live as a fully produced game with commentators, Drury Forbes and Adam Dean. Click here for LIVE STREAMING. The broadcast will start at 6.50pm for a pre-game show followed by game 2 of the Down Under Invitational Series. Please note: Friday night’s game will be the only game live-streamed during this Series.
Following the game on Friday night, there will be an opportunity to meet and get an autograph of your favourite player at Blacktown International Sportspark. So bring you bat, ball or glove and get an autograph of your favourite Spirit and Red Terrier.
The Series will have its own side-show with the world’s female best batter, Stacey Porter, facing the women’s best pitcher, Monica Abbott. This should be a highly entertaining match-up and the Series will be a great test for the Aussie Spirit pitchers, Kaia Parnaby, Justine Smethurst, Jocelyn McCallum, Vanessa Stokes, Sandra Holden, and Amelia Cudicio as they face a very good hitting team while still vying for a spot on our national team.
Make sure you get out to Blacktown for this weekend’s Series as it is the last time the Aussie Spirit will be playing games in Australia before they travel to North America in June to prepare for, and participate in the World Cup of Softball XI in Oklahoma City and the WBSC XV Women’s World Softball Championship in Vancouver, Canada in July. Get to the park and show your colours!
Remember this is a FREE event. A special thank you to Softball Australia sponsors for making this a free event for anyone wanting to watch women’s softball at the highest level.
See you there!
