Lisa Dodd catches the ball at first base for the last out of the championship game of the All European Championship held in Amsterdam in 2007. Lisa played for Fiorini Forli of Italy, a team in the European Women’s Professional Softball League. Forli qualified for the All European Championship by winning the All Italian Softball Championship the same year. Lisa was one of three American players on the team and played pitcher, second base, and first base. Although it is a professional league, winning this championship is very similar in prestige to winning America’s NCAA Division I Women’s College World Series. This is European softball at its highest level.
