Te Kirika was selected to tour with the U23 Major Sox to Argentina in April 2023. We have watched him progress in the sport since his younger days from the Junior Black Sox to the Black Sox trials late last year to present, ready now for the challenge at the U23 World Cup in Argentina.
Te Kirika has a fantastic attitude and a team first mentality. He certainly has the approach where no player will work harder than he does both on the diamond and on the training field.
He has lightning speed and is a threat both with the short game and on the bases. He is a modern-day softball player with both speed and power. He has worked hard to develop these skills and because of his work ethic and willingness to get better these will carry him a long way within the game.
