Softball Australia would like to introduce Fully Loaded Softball.
A new brand of softball that puts the pressure and excitement in games from the first pitch. A more exciting, faster format with big scores, more home-runs and more edge of your seat, white knuckle moments.
In softball, like many sports, we talk about “Big Moments”. Defining points where a team can win or lose. A moment that can change the course of history and be talked about for decades. A moment when a player overcomes nerves, picks up their team and carries them to victory. Often in sport these moments are few and far between.
