Video: New Zealand Black Sox Perform Maori Haka Before ISF World Softball Championships Game
The recently concluded ISF World Softball Championships finished familiarly: The New Zealand Black Sox, the country's national men's softball squad, took the title, their sixth overall. As is tradition with New Zealand's national teams, the softball team performed a haka before their games to honor the Indigenous Maori people. The haka is a traditional Maori war dance. Three members of the Black Sox are Maori: center fielder Ben Enoka; shortstop Tyson Burne; and infielder Brad Rona.
Here are two videos of separate hakas performed by the Black Sox before games at this year's world softball championships.
