Report

Galway Softball Club, founded in 1998 and one of the oldest Softball teams in Ireland, has after 23 years, and thanks to generous sponsors, managed to field enough teams to form the first Galway Softball League in history. While there was a Cadet Baseball League back in 1970, this is the very first time since Softball Ireland was founded as the Irish Softball Association in 1989 that such a sanctioned league has taken place in Galway or West of the Shannon River. The four teams are An Púcán Base Invaders; Kenny’s Bookshop Hardbacks; Irishscores Hit Squad and Megadale Aqua Blasters.

About

The Softball Ireland Brian Walshe Cup is the second tournament in Irish Slowpitch Softball after the Softball Ireland National Club Championship in the Order of Merit [Reference: 13].

It was previously known as the ISA Championship (Irish Softball Association 1990-1991) IBSA Cup Championship (1992-1996), IBSA 6:4 Cup (Irish Baseball and Softball Association) from 1997-1998, the IBSF Cup (Irish Baseball and Softball Federation) from 1999-2001, and the ISA Cup (Irish Softball Association 2001-2003). It then became the Softball Ireland Cup in 2004, before being renamed the Brian Walshe Cup in 2008

Brian Walshe

Brian first played Softball for the Oddsox in Tymon Park, Dublin 24, in 1991, at 15 years of age, accompanied by his dad, having being delighted to find out that Softball was played in Ireland. He asked all the right questions, and it wasn’t long before he was into the strategy of the game.

Soon he took up umpiring, and in 1993 moved from Oddsox Red to Oddsox Green, as there was a shortage of Pitchers. He excelled here, and found himself on the Ireland team, being the starting Pitcher for the National Team at the European Championships in 1998, 2000, and 2002.

He became Softball Director of the Irish Softball Association (2001-2002), and was ivolved in UCD Softball in a big way, as both Player and Coach. He passed away in 2003 just after taking up the role of managing the Irish Squad, still only 27. [Reference: 25]

Report

Fastpitch Softball is a competitive version of Recreational Mixed Softball, or Baseball, and in USA is primarily a Competitive Women’s version of the game, with a Professional League for women: National Pro Fastpitch.

It differs from the Recreational Coed version of the sport in that the pitching is very fast, and does not have to be in a soft arc like in traditional softball.

The Irish Fastpitch Softball League was started in 2019-20 (although it is currently Coed / Mixed – with an even number of Males and Females), after a decade of Softball Ireland’s Fadtpitch Programme, which included the start of the Women’s Ireland National Team.

There were intended to be Playoffs played, but unfortunately due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic, Week 4 (Playoffs) had to be cancelled.

All matches were played at The National Indoor Arena in Blachardstown, Dublin 15, on the Indoor Turf Pitch.
