22/06/2020
It was a bronze medal game line any other in the history of international baseball. The two National Teams needed 12 pitchers to complete a ten-inning drama

Mexico cruised undefeated through the opening round and the first day of the super round at the WBSC Premier12 2019. After suffering consecutive defeats against powerhouses Korea and Japan, Mexico entered the third-place game. This outcome matched what Mexico did during the inaugural edition of the WBSC flagship event.

The USA lost against Mexico in the opening round and also fell to Australia in the super round. A couple of dramatic one-run wins against the host National Team Japan and against Chinese Taipei.
The USA made it to the final in the inaugural edition.

The third-place game of the WBSC Premier12 2019 was not like any other bronze medal game in the history of international softball. The winner was going to earn a ticket to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Mexico and the USA took the field at the Tokyo Dome on 17 November 2019. Arturo Reyes stepped to the mound for Mexico and home plate umpire Makita Kyohei called playball.
In the bottom half of the first, the USA handed the ball to Cody Ponce .
The teams would need a total 12 pitchers to complete the ten inning drama.

The WBSC Premier12 2019 bronze medal game will be available for free at www.youtube.com/wbsc at 9 pm Eastern US Standard Time* on Monday, 22 June (3 am Central European Time on Tuesday 24 June) and Tuesday at 11 am US Eastern Standard Time (5:00 pm Central European Time*) at www.facebook.com/wbsc.
