Softball season set to start

2017-10-10 06:00

The softball season kicks off on Saturday.

For the first time since unification, matches will be played away from the home of softball, Turfhall softball stadium.

The recent spate of vandalism at the stadium and the current water restrictions resulted in some fields not being playable (“Security struck out”, People’s Post, 26 ­September).

Games are now being played at City Park, Plumstead High School and the Pinelands soccer fields.

In the opening game current champions Glenthorn A’s play newly promoted Lavender Hill at Turfhall.

The other promoted club, VOB, face a stiff challenge against Falcons.

City Park has been a vibrant softball facility on weekends in the past.

Westridge Yankees and St Martins top the bill at the venue to meet in what is expected to be a fierce battle.

In the other super league game Tanta­sport and Kenfac Phillies face each other at Plumstead High School.
