The Wesseling Vermins swept the Freising Grizzlies in the best-of-five German Series to win the national title.

The Wesseling Vermins swept the Freising Grizzlies, three games to none, in the best-of-five final series of the 2020 German Softball Bundesliga. After winning games one and two in Freising, by scores of 10-8 and 9-4, the Vermins clinched the title at home with a 7-3 win.

It's the eighth German Softball Championship in Wesseling’s history, all since 2010. German national team pitcher Claudia Volkmann (Wesseling) was named MVP of the final series, with Fiona Brosch (Freising) named best pitcher and Julia de Jong (Wesseling) best hitter.

The German Softball-Bundesliga opened the 2020 season in early August after a four-month delay due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Following an abbreviated six-week regular season, the top teams from the north and the south met in the playoffs.
