Mexican Zone 16U & 18U Teams


The Mexican Zone 18U & 16U teams from Culiacán, Sinaloa, will play at the inaugural PONY International Softball World Series. Francisco Avila, coach from Mexico City, says his teams wanted to play at the tournament for several reasons.

“It’s a great opportunity to reflect all our efforts, knowledge, and dedication applied to the discipline of softball in the same way we raise our country Mexico with great pride.” Avila said.

Both teams have participated in 11 tournaments and placed third at PONY’s Fast Pitch World Series in Laredo, Texas, in 2018.

The Mexican 18U team has been preparing by developing their skills as well as perfecting little details in their training. The local and national tournaments they've competed in Avila says has driven them to perform an excellent role.

Some of the team’s strengths include good contact hitters and fast players who can reach first base in different ways. Unity and good attitude are also important factors.

“To stand out as a team, the plays do not come out if only one puts on their side, a rally is not done with a single hit, we all do our part to fulfill our objective satisfactorily.” Avila said.

The Mexican 18U Team hopes to get as far as possible in the tournament and be within the first four places based on last year’s results.They were champions at the National Children’s League in Zapopan, Jalisco, as well as the Mexican 16U Team.

The 16U Team has hopes of achieving the championship title representing Region III of Culiacan. They train daily, with their strengths being in the infield and outfield.

“We train hard day-by-day, practicing several moves for girls to be stronger and motivated.” Avila said.

It’s important for them to give their best effort, but also have fun during the process. Avila says that while in the U.S.  he will be at the tournament and when on free time, see Roberto Osuna pitch a game for the Houston Astros.
