Tony Smith, a Christchurch sports journalist and softballer, is researching and writing a history of New Zealand softball. He is keen to hear from anyone with information, or memories, of the early days of softball in NZ. Tony is currently researching the 1949 NZ women's team, which toured Australia. He would especially like to trace any surviving team members (or families) of the 1949 NZ women's team that toured Australia. If you can help in any way, please contact Tony via firstname.lastname@example.org or on 027 487 5962 SNZ fully supports Tony’s work and is truly thankful for all his support towards our game.
