After a nail-biting victory in the championship match versus Japan, Argentina was able to bring the trophy back to their country for the first time in 2019.
This coming Friday, November 11, marks 15 days until the Opening Day of the WBSC Men’s Softball World Cup, when 12 teams from all five continents will begin their quest to make history and win the most prestigious award in international men’s softball – the WBSC Men’s Softball World Cup trophy. The Opening Day of the WBSC Men’s Softball World Cup will take place on November 25.
The trophy is designed to resemble the upper body profile of a batter following a vigorous swing. This design was inspired by the tournament logo. The most recognizable component of the logo is the iconic blue helmet, while the golden arch represents the honor of representing one’s country in the highest-level competition in the world. The picture depicts the development of the sport as well as its proliferation across the world using curves.
The World Cup of Softball is held every four years
The majority of the five-kilogram trophy is constructed out of brass metal, and its features are finished in either 24k gold, silver plating, or plexiglass respectively. After being constructed with meticulous attention paid to the tiniest of details, each individual component is then given a hand-applied polish. The assembly of the trophy represents the final and most significant step in the process.
The 45 centimeter trophy was crafted by Italian goldsmiths Fratelli Pazzaglia in Pisa, Italy. It was presented for the first time in 2019, and Argentina was the team that brought it home following a dramatic victory in the championship match versus Japan.
After nine days of competition at Rosedale Park in Auckland, New Zealand, the XVII WBSC Men’s Softball World Cup trophy will be hoisted by the winning team on December 4th. The tournament took place in New Zealand.
