The 2019 inaugural Fastpitch League successfully began on Sunday November 10, 2019 in the National Indoor arena in Abbotstown. The recently opened indoor artificial turf arena was the perfect venue as the four teams played double headers to launch the league.
Speaking on the launch, Director of Fastpitch Melanie Cunningham said “ This is another big step in the introduction of Softball to Ireland with the league been the ultimate goal when the sport launched in 2015”.
“I would like to thank all the Players who signed up and are taking part today to help us realise our dream. I would also like to especially thank the volunteers who have made this possible, Brian Connolly and Eithne Walsh who are on the league Committee, our WNT management team Martin De Lange and Andrew O’Hanlon and of course our WNT Players Caitlyne, Maeve Og and Sinéad.” Added Cunningham.
We will be providing details of some Fastpitch Coaching in advance of the next Tournament day on December 15, 2019.
