Dad and son to play for Black Sox

4:54 pm on 17 November 2011

A father and son will play together in the national men's softball team for the first time, following the naming of the Black Sox squad for this month's tour to Canberra.

Pita Rona will make softball history when the 17-year-old joins his father Brad Rona, who's 35-years-old.

Pita Rona's come into the squad for former Black Sox captain Jarrad Martin, who's pulled out due to business commitments.

Both Ronas had been named for this year's North American tour but Brad Rona had to pull out with injury.

The Black Sox are building up towards next March's hosting of the World Championships.
