The Bristol first ball tournament actually happened this year! …after a number of cancellations due to wet weather and soggy grounds over previous years it was a pleasure to see so many teams get the chance to come out and test their new players and rusty ‘equipment’ ..
People were so excited they even turned up and put fences up the night before !
It was ‘brass knobs’ cold on Sunday and the wind was a nightmare for pitchers, however once it dropped and the sun came out it was lovely – perfect for playing in – or sitting around for hours on end as some teams had to do ..Sadly, there was the inevitable drop out at the last minute by the T Bolts …again ! .. are they sure even want to play softball at all?
The Ever improving Flycatchers won the ‘C’ level Trophy, the ever green Creamers won the ‘B’ trophy and the Jets somehow managed to win the ‘A’ trophy even though they only won 3 games all day !
Pics of winning team to follow …
