Dates: 30 Jun 2019 to 06 Jul 2019
Italy has won the Women’s European Championship 2019. After four years, they proved to be the strongest again and took home the gold medal just like they did in 2015.
The final between the Netherlands and Italy is everything that you expected from a final game. With the Dutchies scoring one run in the first inning, and the Italians scoring one in the second, the game was tied 1-1 up until the fifth inning. In the fifth inning, it was Laura Vigna who hit it over the fence, good for a 2RBI homerun which gave the Italians a 1-3 lead. Virginie Anneveld made the game more dramatic again when her solo home run in the 6th changed the score to 2-3, but that was it. Greta Cecchetti closed her 7th Championship in her career with a strikeout and together with her team seized the 11th Women's European Championship title for her country.
