Melbourne Softball’s Social Sunday Slowpitch League is scheduled for a ten week season commencing with first games on Sunday 22 June. Game day commences at 10.45 with a sign-in and warm-up session, followed by a game from 11am to 12.15pm
To get started: Sunday 15th June is a Come n Try day incorporating registration of individual players, at Fawkner Park from 10.30am to 12noon
Social Slowpitch is a mixed gender modified version of our great sport. Any interested person can just turn up on the day, sign-in, pay the game fee and enjoy a morning of softball where the focus is on fun, fitness and friendships.
How much? $5.00 per player per game (insurance cover and equipment provided). For registered Metro League members just $2.00 per player per game.
A few hardy souls from the MSA braved the chill and the pre dawn start to fly the flag at the 2014 Mother’s Day Classic as part of an Active Melbourne initiative to help Melbournians become and stay more active.A fantastic morning was had by everyone and we all had a blast promoting the great game of softball to those in the park.
Even the stilt walkers couldn’t resist the temptation of hitting a wiffle ball. Mind you, his grip did need a bit of work.
Tony and Poppy had the kids throwing balls and swinging bats like a pro and judging from the many smiling faces I’m pretty sure everyone left feeling pretty happy.
The Victorian school girls team has had a successful competition at Blacktown over the last week, taking out a Bronze medal.
Natasha Holt from MSA side Red Devils was named Victorian MVP. She, along with Narisse Privitera, who is also another rising Red Devil were also selected for the Australian team to tour Hawaii later in the year.
They, along with Kylie Steemers and Meaghan Grah, have been competing with the Red Devils at Fawkner Park for many years now and we are incredibly proud of their achievements and look forward to seeing them develop their skills further in the coming years.
This week marks the 25th anniversary of National Volunteer Week and the MSA would like to offer their thanks to all those who give their time freely to the Association and their clubs.
Without the help of such volunteers we would be unable to sustain the vibrant community and competition we have at Fawkner Park and as such we are appreciative of all the time and work that goes into keeping the competition sustainable and fun for all.
Sincere appreciation is extended to all those who volunteer their time for softball at Fawkner Park…
We should all give thanks, not just this week but every week, for their commitment and dedication and for the time and effort they put into their role
Melbourne Softball and the softball community at Fawkner Park are cheering on the Victorian Schoolgirls team currently competing in the School Sport Australia Softball Championships being played at Blacktown NSW from 3-10 May 2014.
We extend good luck to members of our community, Natasha Holt (vice captain), Narisse Privitera, Meaghan Grah and Kylie Steamers and their fellow team members as they strive for a national title.
Thought the MSA only played Slowpitch over summer? Not a chance, we are crazy enough to be out swinging the bat all year round. So come down and join our Social SlowPitch Competition that begins Sunday June 22nd.
