The French Baseball & Softball Federation announced today that Anthony Cros will manage the French Men's National Softball Team, a national team program that is being relaunched in order to boost the development of Men's Softball in France.

Anthony will oversee the tryouts to build and field the team at this year's European Championships in Ledenice, Czech Republic, where France will only make its second apparition after 1995.

A former professional baseball player in Northern America (Quebec Capitales, CanAm), Anthony Cros was instrumental in the development of Men's Softball in France by kickstarting Montpellier's softball team that won three consecutive French Men's Softball Series in 2016, 2017 and 2018 as well as the first edition of the Challenge de France in 2018.

He was the only French player to participate in the Team Europe vs New Zealand exhibition game in 2018 where he hit a home-run as a pinch-hitter.
