"Ema represents the strength, determination, and fun at the core of the slow pitch community," stated Commissioner Ferrero. "Gyna's innovative thinking has given us a mascot that not only symbolizes the spirit of our players but also connects with fans and athletes on a global scale."
The Hobduras National Director, Juan Carlos Andino, went on to emphasize the importance of such symbols in sports. "Ema is set to become more than just a figure at the championships; she is a beacon of inspiration and unity, reminding us that slow pitch is about coming together to celebrate our love for the game."
With Ema taking the field, the 2023 championships are shaping up to be an unforgettable event, promising to draw players and spectators into the thrilling world of slow pitch like never before.
