Kimberly Bruins and Lexy Bennet, former Longhorns playing in the Italian professional softball league for team Specchiasol Bussolengo have qualified for the Championship series next weekend. In the semi-finals Specchiasol defeated Bolate in a thrilling 5th game (best of 5) 7inning 1-0 victory in bottom of 7. In the circle for Specchiasol was Kim Bruins going against Gretta Checchetti (Italian National pitcher). Next weekend Specchiasol will play group A winner and defending Champions La Loggia. During the season the league was divided in two groups, A and B. The foreign pitchers (anyone not Italian) could only start the second game of double headers, which were played on Saturdays, made for interesting matchups. What a fantastic way to spend a summer for the fortunate ones to play softball and travel Europe in their spare time.
