Report

Marlay Martyrs’ Female Team, the M&Ms again won the Leinster Softball Association Ladies League in 1999, although this time they were pushed all the way by new team Easyriders, who finished just one win, and three points behind the M&Ms.

Easyriders became the second ever team to beat the team from Marlay Park in Rathfarnham when defeating them 10-4 on the last round of play, although by then the M&Ms had wrapped up the title. It was a loss to Brazen Hussies (who in 1997 were the only other team to ever win against the M&Ms), by the narrowest of margins (10-9) which in the end cost the Easyriders a share of first place. Brazen Hussies finished in mid-table with five wins from 10.

The Eadyriders were among a trio of teams who replaced the Oddsox Nonads, Foxy Sluggers and AIB Loan Homers Lisa from 1998 – the other two new teams were Dolly Birds (5-5, 35 Points), and Firebirds (1-8, 1 Forfeit, 21 Points). She Devils were the other team to return from the previous year, finishing 2-8 (22 Points).
