V IBAF Women’s Baseball World Cup: Canada turning heads at the Worlds | Canadian Baseball Network

Team Canada players wanted to use this year’s Women’s World Cup to show everybody that they’re for real.

So far, they have done just that.

The Canadian women have started the tournament in Edmonton with five straight wins. With each victory the host team has brought something new to the table, showing its various strengths and reiterating the fact that they will find a way to win against anybody.

“We’ve had a couple games where our bats were just on fire, had a close game that we won, had an extra-inning game,” five-time World Cup veteran Ashley Stephenson said. “So we’ve had a little bit of everything and I think that prepares us nicely for the rest of the tournament.”

The win improves Canada’s record to a perfect 5-0 which puts them in sole possession of first place in round robin standings and assures them a berth in one of Saturday’s semi-finals at the 5th IBAF Women’s World Cup.
