Ireland Drop 2 Spots to 22nd in World
Ireland have dropped 2 spots to 22nd in the world in the latest WBSC World Rankings.
With no senior international tournaments to participate in during 2018, Ireland’s only means to earn world ranking points was through underage tournaments at which Ireland earned silver (U19) and bronze (U22) medals. Ireland are the 6th highest ranked European team in the world behind Italy (9th), Netherlands (10th), Great Britain (12th), Czech Republic (15th) and Greece (21st).
USA Softball have retained their position as World number 1 following their World championship win in August 2018.
