Mannheim Tornados win 2016 German Softball National Championship

The Mannheim Tornados have won their 11th softball championship following their victory at the 2016 German Softball National Championship.

They had to overcome a 0-2 deficit in the best-of-five final series against the Neunkirchen Nightmares. The Nightmares were two outs away of a three-game sweep, but a muffed throw at first base allowed Mannheim to win game three 4-3.

Mannheim’s Lori Spingola then pitched the Tornados to a 1-0 shutout in game four to tie the series.

In the decisive fifth game four runs in the second laid the groundwork en route to an 8-3 victory.

For Mannheim it’s their first title since 2011 and 11th overall.
