USA Looking To Medal

expecting to improve from dissapointing #9 finish

With 13 athletes having previous USA Softball experience as either a member of the Men’s or Junior Men’s National Team, the U.S. roster brings plenty of international experience to the field.

Led by a core group of veterans, the U.S. pitching staff will be led by Tony Mancha (Las Cruces, N.M.), while seasoned veteran Matt Palazzo (Pleasant Hill, Iowa) will look to lead a powerful U.S. lineup. With three-time National Team Head Coach and legendary Hall of Famer Denny Bruckert (Gillespie, Ill.) leading the team, the United States will look to improve upon a ninth-place finish at the 2015 WBSC World Championship and a current No. 6 world-ranking.
