Amazing save by pitcher

A note to all of our pitchers, I want you to practise this so we can use it in tournaments!

Training has now resumed

Our first training session went off without a hitch last night. It wasn't even that cold out and it managed to stay dry too!

I looks like we're going to have to compete with some "tag rugby" team for space on the pitch so I guess we'll just have to show up early every week (and with the bats!)

See you all next Wednesday

First Training Session

As I'm sure you've all noticed the evenings are getting a bit longer and as you all know that means its time to start softball training.

Our first training session of this season will take place this Wednesday (23 April 2008) in the usual place (Laurel Park) and every Wednesday until the end of the summer (weather permitting of course!)

Saturday training sessions will start a little later into the season

Don't worry this is just a heads up and I'll send the usual reminder to everyone on Wednesday

PS The staff in the Bierhaus have been notified and are expecting us!

UL Intervarsity 2008

Hi All

Just to let everyone know that the we sent two teams to the Intervarsity competition in UL last weekend, the Tribes in the competitive competition and the Hookers in the recreational competition.

After a successful league competition the Hookers exceeded expectations and qualified for the Plate knockout competion where, of course, they were drawn against the Tribes in the semi final.

Being the first team the Tribes were considered favourites for this game but it turned out to be a very competitive game in which the balance swung many times before it was decided in the bottom of the last inning. Despite the tag of underdog the Hookers prevailed beating the Tribes and qualifing for the final of the plate. The plate final was a tight game but the Hookers came back from behind to take the trophy to end a fantastic weekend for the Hookers on a high.

Congratulations to the Hookers team who have not only won this seasons first piece of silverware for the club but have also, and really more importantly, gained bragging rights against the Tribes.

Also a reminder to everyone that training will be starting soon (probably the 23 April) but don't worry everyone will be notified of the exact date when its finalised, the staff in the Bierhaus will also be notified!

Finally on behalf of everyone I'd like to give our best wishes to Roberto and Marta and Kevin and Angelica on their impending nuptials.
