Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : June 24th 2009
48 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, June 25, 2009 MB Inner-West Weekly Sport Fast-arm Joel is no soft touch SHIREEN KHALIL Joel Harris is a dominant softball pitcher. Picture: PHIL BLATCH ~P0644994 IT'S easy picturing a car travel- ling at 116km/h but what about a softball? Homebush Boys High student Joel Harris is known as ''softy'' but with a pitching speed of more than 116km/h, is he far from soft. Joel, 16, has been playing for Southern Districts United Slammers since he started playing five years ago. ''My dad used to play softball and all of my family have also been playing and coaching,'' Joel said. ''I started when I was in primary school and my dad taught me to pitch and I just got used to it and I've loved it.'' In January this year Joel played in the NSW under-19s finishing in second place and smashed his personal best by pitching at 116km/h. ''It was good pitching in the finals after the fourth inning,'' he said. ''It's something I've never done before and it was good knowing what kind of pressure you are under. ''It was scary at first but when you get out there you just be yourself.'' Joel also plays third base but said he preferred the position he was best at. ''I like pitching because I'm just used to it and the coaches love me for it,'' he said.
