Ottawa, Ont. – Softball Canada is pleased to announce the list of seventeen (17) athletes from the Men’s National Team Athlete Pool who have been named to the 2019 WBSC Men’s Softball World Championship roster. The event will take place in Prague/Havlickuv Brod, Czech Republic from June 13-23, 2019.
 
Team Canada won bronze at the previous WBSC Men’s Softball World Championship held in Whitehorse in 2017. A Men’s National Team Development Camp was held earlier his year.
 
“Selecting the 2019 Men’s National Team was a very difficult task as there are many deserving players in our athlete pool, which proves the future is bright for 2019 and beyond” stated Men’s National Team Head Coach John Stuart. “With our starting middle infielders not available in 2019, our coaching staff really had to build this team position by position including reserves. It was important for us to ensure we built a team not only with great leadership and team chemistry, but also with players that are willing to accept defined roles.”
 
“As a coaching staff, we feel that with our pitching, hitting, defence and depth, we have a team that will not only contend for a medal but put Canada back on top in 2019.”

The athletes who will represent Canada at the 2019 WBSC Men’s Softball World Championship are:
