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.

Report

Galway Tribes and Cork Hammerheads agreed to play two series of Challenge matches either side of the Irish Open Softball Tournament in Limerick in August 2008. In the first series in Cork on 19th July , Galway went 7 runs down in the first innings, but clawed their way back to lead, although they eventually lost by one run. The second match saw Cork win by four runs as the effect of a 3 hour journey to Cork took its toll on the Galway players. The second series in Galway on 13th September was forfeited by Cork due to lack of numbers.
