Leinster Softball

The Leinster Softball League is a Coed Slowpitch Softball League in Leinster Province, Ireland. It is currently at a 5:5 Male:Female Ratio although in its early days it was 9:1 Male:Female. There was a Female Slowpitch League from 1997-2002 which was League for Competitive Females from the top Divisions in the Leinster Softball League.

The League started in 1982 with 5 teams – teams from the American Embassy, American Businessmen, American College Students, the Japanese Embassy & Businessmen, and one from the Druid’s Chair, Killiney.

In 1990 the first Irish Softball Association was formed, adding a second Division, and by the late 1990s the Leinster League had grown to 4 Divisions, run by a Provincial Committee – the Leinster Softball Association. In 2000 the Irish Softball Association broke away from the Irish Baseball Association and ran the Leinster Softball League directly, adding a fifth Division.

In 2004 the Irish Softball Association was rebranded Softball Ireland, and the number of divisions dropped to four. Softball Leinster was reformed in 2011 for the purposes of running the League from 2012 onwards, with the League dropping to three levels.

The most successful clubs over the entire history of the League have been Dodder Dynamoes (the oldest Softball team in Ireland) and Marlay Martyrs (both based in South Dublin suburbs – Marlay in Marlay Park, Rathfarnham (D14) and Dodder Dynamoes originally from Dodder Valley Park and now nomadic.
