Aussie Steelers celebrate their anniversary as World Champions

27 July 2010

27 July 2010 marks the anniversary of the Australian Open Men's fastpitch Softball team - the Aussie Steelers - being crowned the World Champions at the XII ISF Men's World Championships in Saskatoon, Canada. Sixteen countries took part in the Championship and the Steelers finished the round robin play with a 6-1 win-loss record, their only loss coming against host nation Canada in an extra-innings thriller. It was possibly this game which sparked something within as the team came into their own during the playoffs.
