NOTRE DAME, Ind. – University of Notre Dame softball junior outfielder Alexis Bazos has been selected to represent Greece at the 2018 World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) Super 6 tournament. Bazos and her teammates from the Greece Women's Senior National Team will play in a six-team tournament scheduled for Sept. 18-22 in Hoofddorp, the Netherlands.
Bazos (BAYzose) is one of 17 players that comprise the 2018 Greece National Team roster for the WBSC Super 6 tournament. This will mark the second major international tournament appearance for Bazos in as many years, after she made her debut with Greece at the 2017 Women's Softball European Championship in Bollate, Italy. For just the second time in a tournament that dates back to 1979, the Greek squad cracked the final six teams in Europe with a sixth-place finish out of 23 entries last summer.
Bazos closed the 2017 Women's Softball European Championship among Greece's top players on offense. She batted .310 in 11 starts, adding 10 runs, one double, seven RBI, three stolen bases and a .375 on-base percentage at the plate for the Hellas. Bazos led all Greek hitters in both runs scored and stolen bases during the tournament, placing second in total hits (nine) and third in RBI.
Bazos is the latest Notre Dame player to compete and train at the international level, with the bulk of prior international experience by Irish players as part of the United States National Team system. Past Notre Dame softball international highlights include Lizzy Lemire (red), Jen Sharron and Jarrah Myers (blue) combining to appear in the USA Softball Shootout, U.S. Cup, Canada Cup and Pan Am Qualifier as members of the red and blue Team USA squads in 2001.
