The DD Cup held over the weekend of the 24th/25th May Bank Holiday experienced every type of Spring weather imaginable but still managed to get through the schedule on time and in high spirits.
Saturday was almost a complete wash out and if it weren’t for the weather proof batter boxes it would have been a very different story, eventually the rain relented just in time for the last games of the day – Sunday was the total opposite with warm sunshine and stronger winds drying out the damp grounds quickly and making a perfect day for Softball.
Teams from Nottingham, London, and even 2 from Jersey joined the usual competitors from Cardiff & Bristol. The final was contested between the Base invaders from Bristol and Jackson Falcons all the way from Jersey, both teams narrowly only just made it after extremely hard fought semi finals with the Notts Redbacks and last years winners Cardiff Hammers.
Jersey’s Jackson Falcons came out as deserved winners in a full 7 inning final after holding off a ‘come back onslaught’ by a determined Base invaders. The MVP Awards were shared by Sean from Base invaders and Rochelle from Jersey
Other prizes went to The Hammers the Ice cold Pitchers and a special Gamesmanship award went to the CSL’s mixed team the imaginativly named Coalition of Swinging Legends.
