GIJANG, Korea – The World Baseball Softball Confederation revealed the LG Presents WBSC Women’s Baseball World cup 2016 “All-World Team” Sunday night, following the conclusion of the world championship event at Hyundai-Gijang Dream Ballpark Sunday night.

Six nations and three continents (Americas, Asia and Oceania) are represented on the announced All-World Team.




The elite 10-player line-up is led by tournament MVP and Japan National Team captain Ayami Sato.  The only two-time World Cup MVP compiled a leading 21 strikeouts and two wins, which included a complete-game shutout of Canada in Sunday’s Final.

Announcing it would be her last time participating in the world championship, U.S. Women’s National Team star Tamara Holmes batted .722 in Gijang to be named designated hitter of the All-World squad.

The All-World infield features players from the National Teams of Australia, Canada, India and Japan:

  • C: Tahnee Lovering (AUS)
  • 1B: Kate Psota Kate (CAN)
  • 2B: Yuki Kawabata (JPN)
  • 3B: Geeta Bhuyan IND)
  • SS: Veronika Boyd (CAN)

The All-World Team outfield is patrolled by players from three countries: Australia’s Tammy McMillan, Chinese Taipei’s Wen-Chia Shen, and USA’ Gomez Brittany.  Shen generated many highlight clips in left field.

Chinese Taipei’s Huang Chiao Yun was named the All-World Team relief pitcher.

Others worthy of consideration were the National Team shortstops of Chinese Taipei and Venezuela – Wen-Ching Shieu and Sor Maris Brito — as well as Venezuela catcher Osmary Garcia, who all produced key defensive highlights that helped lead their nations to the bronze medal game for the first time in history.
