The bigger obstacle is the selection committee. They need more new blood in there. Some of the players from the NPF that tried out this year and didn’t make it makes no sense. Myers should be there instead of with Great Britain,Cervantes could be there instead of with Mexico. Kretschman should be there on reputation alone. I have seen several tryout camps and have seen girls have great camps and not make the team and girls have terrible camps and make it because they have the bigger name. If they don’t pick the right players Japan is still the team to beat.

Excuse my ignorance... I have a question.
From what little I know about international national teams, I was under the impression that players needed to be citizens or qualify for duel citizenship to play on these teams.  So, my question is... How are players such as:
Meghan King
Giselle Juarez
Alesha Ocascio
Kamalani Dung
Able to play for Puerto Rico? If memory serves me right, Taran Avelo has played for Puerto Rico before as I believe she has duel citizenship.

On March 2, 1917, the Jones–Shafroth Act was signed, collectively making Puerto Ricans United States citizens without rescinding their Puerto Rican citizenship. ... He declared that "if the earth were to swallow the island, Puerto Ricans would prefer Americancitizenship to any citizenship in the world.

I don't understand why Puerto Rico doesn't simply have a tryout, inviting all U.S. mainlanders to participate

Their pitching staff is awesome... and then there is barely anything

Well...it's nice to see softballjunkie223 to share their path in life. Excuse me for forgetting that it is an unincorporated territory of the US, yet they have their own "national" team.

Does anyone here know  why Michelle Floyd is with Team Venezuela.
I do know she is getting paid to pitch for that country.

Venezuela always picks up pitchers that do not carry the qualifications for international play.  I have heard that as long as it is not a qualifier of some sort, this is allowable.

46000% socialist inflation yet paying an American to pitch. A third stringer at that.

Heard from a Venzuelan that some people are pissed cause the country is starving and American  paid players are imported to play softball for the national team.

A homeless dude in PHX said G. Juarez has PR in her.

It seems that McQuillin has a very good chance to pitch in Lima next July.

How nice... He must be quite informed.  With PR being an unincorporated part of the US and technically US citizens, then why be declared as a separate nation? Is it just another opportunity to have a US team under the guise of PR? And do they have tryouts or just call players and ask if they want to represent PR.  Maybe the homeless guy can answer this one too.

To play on the PUR team you either need to be a PUR citizen (US Citizens are not automatically PUR citizens), or have a native PUR parent or grandparent. At least that's how one of the players explained it to me. I know for instance that Alvelo's GF was native PUR.

I was taught that If I could not spell or pronounce a word correct to learn how or not use it.
Spell check is wonderful.

Thank you for this, I wondered how Meghan King was on the team.  She was asked about it and said "its complicated".  She probably has a PR grandparent, but she looks more Scandinavian than Spanish.
