Third/Forth play off:

FED Schneisenbande Dodgers: 15
TSG Niederrad Giants: 17

An extremely close game with both sides fighting hard. After the first inning, the game was tied at 7:7 each making for an exciting second half! In the end it came down to the last batter and the Giants superstar brought it home with a huge hit that saw two of their runners get home for the scores.


The Final:

Week 3 Game Postponement

MLB News

We have been monitoring the weather all day and wanted to leave the decision as late as possible to do everything we can to get the games played this evening. Although the forecast does suggest it will be dry later, due to the intensity of the heavy rain across London over the last couple of hours, we have made the decision to postpone tonight’s games. This decision has been in the interest of participant safety, due to conditions underfoot. We do not want to risk play in dangerous conditions, with standing water very likely across all venues.

We will do our best to reschedule all games with double games next week and will email with an update by end of play tomorrow, Wednesday 30th May. For future weeks if we need to cancel a game due to weather we will email at 3pm on the day of the games with a notice of cancellation. If you do not hear from us then please take it that the games are going ahead in future weeks.

Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any queries in the meantime.

On June 29-30th 2019 at the London Stadium, the old rivalry will come together in a two-game set in what will be the first MLB games ever played in Europe.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan said: “I am absolutely delighted that we have secured this historic agreement for Major League Baseball to come to London in 2019 and 2020. This is a major coup demonstrating, once again, that London is the sporting capital of the world and I am excited about a new partnership with MLB and the long term future of this sport in our great city”

MLB Softball60: A Fantastic Pilot Season Comes to a Close

MLB News

What a season it's been!

Two Circles Cubs have been crowned our inaugural champions, but only by overall run difference! Any team really could beat any other on the day - every game was pretty close and the final league table reflects that.

Shout out to Northwick Parks Hospital Cardinals who valiantly took up the mantle as everyone's favourite underdog... a few more games and we're sure that win would have come!

From MLB Softball60 - we'd like to take this opportunity to thank all the teams and players who have taken part and supported the programme. We understand it isn't always easy to pull a squad together come game day, so your continued efforts and essential feedback are much appreciated.

We will be in touch as soon as details for the 2018 launch have been confirmed. We would love to welcome you back to the programme, and we're sure your extra experience of the game would put you in a great position to top your league!

Best wishes,

Sam

Thank you to everyone who attended the Captains feedback session after yesterday's games!

Moving forward - we will be sending out a feedback survey in the next few days. Please do pass the link on to anyone who has taken part in the programme - it won't take more than 5 minutes to complete, and it will play an very important role in us making improvements to ensure MLB Softball60 is as rewarding, and as exciting to be a part of, as it can possibly be.

We will also soon release further details around plans for the final game of the season, which we hope to make a real celebration of the pilot season coming to a close.

Thanks again for all your support and feedback so far, we cannot exaggerate how thankful we are.
