“We’re just really proud, Nate’s had his own struggles so for him to be doing this it’s a really big achievement,” she said.

“He loves catching and his passion has only grown since he started four years ago, any time his dad is home early they’re out throwing the ball.”

Nate was introduced to softball by a school friend in grade one, and the pair will both be representing Victoria next month.

Many past School Sport Victoria members have gone on to compete at national and international competitions including the Olympic Games, World Championships and Commonwealth Games.

Nate and his Victorian teammates will be looking to show their best at the championships and potentially play for Australia in the future.
