Biographical Information[edit]

Emma Patry has played for the French women's national team.

Her brothers discovered baseball while in the US and the family continued the sport in France. [1] She played for the French softball team in the 2019 U16 Euro Championship, 2021 U18 Euro Championship and 2021 and 2022 European Championships. [2] She hit .133/.161/.167 at junior college in the US in 2021-2022. [3]

She then played for France in the 2022 European Women's Championship, starting in center field. In her first game, she hit third against the Netherlands. She grounded out her first at-bat against Merle Langevoord but singled in Angelique Andre the next time up and finished with three of France's six runs. She also got the win, replacing Cassandra Vigneau on the mound with a 5-5 tie in the 7th and retiring Anouk Vergunst and Wendy Bladt (K), walking Kika Wessels then striking out Zoë Lageweg. She scored the winner in the bottom of the inning, drawing a walk then scoring when Yasmine Derbal singled and Magali De Rooy made an error on the play. She also scored the winning run in the semifinals. Tied 12-12 with Great Britain, she was hit by a Dora Lau pitch in the 7th, stole second, then scored later on a hit by Léna Sellam. She began the title game with an inside-the-park homer off Tereza Stejspalová as France won to get a spot in the 2023 Women's Baseball World Cup. It was the first homer in French women's baseball team annals. She finished the Euros at .308/.471/.769 with nine runs and four steals in four games, the one scoreless inning and three putouts without an error, having gone 1-0. She tied Laura Hirai for the event lead in runs, tied for fourth in hits (4), tied Kristýna El Ghannam for the most extra-base hits (3), tied for second in doubles (1), tied for second in triples (1, one behind Claury Scatliffe), tied Karolína Blažková for the home run lead (1), led with ten total bases (two ahead of El Ghannam and Blažková), led in slugging (.042 ahead of Blažková) and tied for second in swipes (one behind Bladt). She did not win MVP, which went to Coralie Guillemin. [4]
