MOERGESTEL (Neth.) - The softball-team of Roef!, which finished in fourth place this season in the 'Overgangsklasse' (second highest league), gained experience, as it added veteran players Andee Lindgren and Sarah Vandermeiren to its roster for the 2013 season. This year, the two played for Centrals, which promoted to the big league, but despite that, they opted to remain playing in the Overgangsklasse.

Three players will not be back with the team, being former National Team and big league-player Caroline Sins, Debby Barbé (former member National Junior Team) and Sanne van de Meijdenberg, who all retired. Barbé stopped to focus on her study.

Before coming to Centrals, lefthanded 1B/pitcher Andee Lindgren played seven seasons in the big leagues. After her debut with Sparks Haarlem, she played six years for Twins. Outfielder Sarah Vandermeiren played five season for Twins, before going to Centrals.

Roef! added three more players, one of them being pitcher Samani Lindenborg from Sparta-Feyenoord. Lisette Bennink and Sofie van der Wiel, the other two players who are coming to Moergestel, are members of the Dutch National Women Baseball Team and both played baseball this season for Pink Panthers Zwijndrecht and Meppers Eersel respectively.
