Report

The West Coast Series of Softball Friendlies was extended in 2009 with Cork Hammerheads visit to Tralee to play a local team on 21 June, coming away with two victories. The Kerry team (Kerry Green Sox?) also planned a return visit later in the year as well as two two more Galway-Cork series of Challenge matches, but there is no evidence of any of these happening. The following year the first proper League season on the West Coast, involving Galway Tribes, Cork Hammerheads, Limerick Originals and West Clare Dlphins took place.
