The Amateur Softball Association of the Philippines (ASAPHIL), led by its president Jean Henri Lhuillier was formally recognized recently by the World Softball Baseball Congress (WSBC), solidifying its position as a distinguished full member of the WSBC representing the Philippines. Shown presenting the plaque of affiliation to Lhuillier is Softball Executive Committee First Vice Chairman Dato’ Low Beng Choo (middle). They were joined by ASAPHIL and SCA officers, (from L to R) ASAPHIL Auditor, Ron Sangil, ASAPHIL Commissioner Venerando Dizer, Softball Confederation Asia (SCA) Vice President See Kok Woi, SCA Secretary General Sally Lim, ASAPHIL Secretary General Denis Nuevo and ASAPHIL Executive Vice President Atty. Rolly Rivera.
The WSBC and SCA officials also took the opportunity to discuss with Lhuillier and the rest of the ASAPHIL board the upcoming Asian Jr. Softball Championships, which the Philippines will host in May next year. This is still in line with ASAPHIL’s strong commitment to elevate Philippine softball to the global stage, capped by its campaign to see the RP Blu Girls hoist the flag for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
