Sunday Wadena Fastball Tournament


On June 16, one of the most exciting softball events in Wadena history happened with the New Zealand International Softball Academy’s 19-and-under Team coming to town. The event was planned a year prior with discussion centred around a Saskatchewan tour of midget ball players from New Zealand. With the strong connection of Wadena to boys softball the decision was made to include Wadena in the cross Canada tour. The New Zealand players were hosted by local billet off the Rosebud Royals and Wadena Wildcat Bantam team.

Game one started with New Zealand jumping out to a quick 5-0 lead over the hometown Rosebud Royals. The Royals would continue to chip away at the lead making it 5-2 in the third inning; however, New Zealand would again pull away after that making the final 12-2 for the team from New Zealand. Leading the way for New Zealand would be shortstop Josh Jacobs with two homeruns and four RBIs. The winning pitcher for the game would be Scott Hartley. The final line score would be:
Rosebud: 2 runs, 2 hits, 2 errors, 7 LOB
NZ: 12 runs, 10 hits, 4 errors, 9 LOB

Game two would see the hometown Rosebud Royals exact revenge on the young in New Zealand team. Rosebud would hold a 4-3 lead after four innings and continue to hold the lead until the next winning when New Zealand pulled ahead 5-4. The Royals would then score 4 runs in the sixth inning to jump out to an 8-5 lead on route to a 9-8 Final for the hometown Royals. Rosebud sent experience and youth to the Mound with Masters aged James Anderson getting the win pitching 5 and 2/3rd inning and Midget aged Nathen Pomedli coming in for the save. The final line score would be:
Rosebud: 9 runs, 12 hits, 1 error, 6 LOB
NZ: 8 runs, 11 hits, 2 errors, 4 LOB

The event was also used to promote boys softball across our province and with that the introduction of local boys that will be heading to New Zealand and Australia in February 2019. The local Saskatchewan Junior Canadian Royals will be heading to Auckland, New Zealand and Sydney, Australia to participate in games against boys teams from those countries. The local boys are 4-time provincial champions and are looking forward to the next step, that being ball at the international level.
