During the upcoming ISF Women's World Championship in Haarlem, two-time Olympic champion Michele Smith will conduct an unique Pitching Masterclass on August 23. This will happen in the indoor facility at the Nol Houtkamp Sportcomplex, the site of the World Championship.

Coaches and pitchers can attend this unique moment to not only meet one of the best Team USA pitchers in history, but also learn more about pitching. Registration is still open.

On August 23, Michele Smith will conduct a Pitching Masterclass. In 1992 through 2002, Michele Smith was one of the pitchers of Team USA, with whom she won the Olympic Games in 1996 and 2000. Besides that, she also won the World Championship three times with the American squad, as well as two Pan American Games. Besides being a good pitcher, Michele Smith is also a very good hitter. From 1993 through 2008, Michele played professionally in the Japanese League and there, she was named Most Valuable Player in eight consecutive seasons. She also won the Japanese championship eight times with her team.

In recent years, Michele is a color commentator and analyst for ESPN during live broadcasts of softball games. She also conducts clinics about pitching and hitting in the USA and worldwide. Michele Smith is elected into several Halls of Fame.

The Pitching Masterclass will be held on August 23 from 10 AM until 12 PM. The costs for participation are only 40 Euros. This includes a lunch, a day-ticket for the World Championship-games on August 23 and a souvenir T-shirt.
