Emotion is the right word to describe the faces of all the people from the softball world and particularly from Parana-Entre Rios.

The World Cup Stadium was full of anxious people to celebrate a unique event, which had among other things a show of fireworks.

Migliavacca also mentioned the support of the State and enterprises that accompany this sport. Then the president of the Argentinean Softball Federation Jacinto Cipriota made intensive appreciation for everyone’s efforts to conduct a tournament of such magnitude.

The mayor of Paraná Blanca Osuna was commissioned to make clear in her speech that accompanies the festival city of softball. “Paraná for the World” expressed.
