TAMWORTH’S STACEY PORTER TO LEAD AUSTRALIAN SOFTBALL TEAM IN JAPAN

Tamworth softball sensation Stacey Porter will head to Japan at the end of the month, where she’ll captain Australia at the Women’s World Championships.

Now in its 16th year, the tournament will see 16 countries compete across 10-days, with defending champions the USA the outright favourites.

Porter stands to add further caps to her already decorated career, having become the second athlete to play 400 games for the Australia women’s national softball team earlier this year.

Newcastle’s Natalie Ward tops the list with 429 games for her country.
