Biographical Information[edit]

Alli Schroder has pitched for the Canadian women's national team.

Schroder debuted for Canada in the 2018 Women's Baseball World Cup at age 16. She started against Australia and struggled, giving up a leadoff triple to Shae Lillywhite and walking Natalie House before Chelsea Forkin hit into a run-scoring force. She did get her first strikeout that inning, veteran Tahnee Lovering. She went 3 2/3 IP and allowed three hits, five walks and six runs (two earned) while fanning two; Elizabeth Gilder relived. She left with a deficit but Canada rallied to win. Her next game, she was much sharper. Replacing Anne-Sophie Lavallée in the 3rd inning of a 5-1 loss to Team USA, she shut down the US batters for 4 2/3 innings (2 H, 3 BB, 2 K). Her final outing also came against the US, in the Bronze Medal Game. She relieved Amanda Asay with two outs in the 6th, trying to close out a 3-2 lead, manager André Lachance putting a lot of faith in the young hurler. She allowed a tying run in the 7th to force extra innings, when Jade Gortarez singled, was bunted over and Malaika Underwood (21 years Schroder's senior) doubled in a run. Schroder escaped further harm, though. She walked Megan Baltzell then retired Michelle Cobb and Anna Kimbrell. She dueled Stacy Piagno with scoreless work in the 8th and 9th despite both innings starting with a runner on board due to the Schiller Rule. In the 10th, Canada scored five runs off Piagno. Schroder opened the bottom of the 10th by fanning Ashton Lansdell but walked Kimbrell and Allison Hamilton singled in a run, another scoring on an error, to close it to 8-5. She shut the door on the host US by getting Samantha Cobb to ground into a game-ending double play, getting the victory in the Bronze Medal game. It was only the second time the US had not won a medal in a Women's Baseball World Cup. For the event, she was second on Canada in IP (12 2/3, 5 behind Asay), tied for first in games pitched and tied Lavallée for 2nd in K (one behind Asay) despite pitching only against strong teams. She did lead the team with 12 walks, though. For the Cup as a whole, she tied for 10th in strikeouts but also tied Dianelis Porro for 2nd in walks (3 behind Rak-yung Kim). She tied MVP Ayami Sato for 4th in opponent average (.188). [1]

After high school, she took a year off during the COVID-19 pandemic then enrolled for the 2021-2022 season for Vancouver Island University. Assuming she gets into a game, she will become the first woman to pitch in the Canadian College Baseball Conference. [2]
