Liverpool Chairman Mike Connolly

Liverpool Softball League Chairman Mike Connolly said he is ready for the new season.

“Everyone at Liverpool Softball League are ready for the new season that begins on Monday with training.

“Anyone aged 14+ of any ability or background can come to the session as we look to grow the popularity of the sport.”

Coaches are ready

Liverpool Softball League coach Steve Shearer says he is ready for a “normal” season.

“The impact of COVID at the time is there, especially during the beginning of last year.

“We hopefully are looking forward to an uninterrupted normal year of softball with everyone ready and most importantly comfortable to play in such a social sporting environment.”

What is Softball?

Softball is a bat-and-ball sport played between two teams of 10 players. It is similar to baseball.

Softballs are larger than baseballs, and the pitches are thrown underhand rather than overhand.

Softball is played on a smaller diamond than in baseball.

Despite the game’s name, the standard softball is not so soft – in fact, it is harder than a baseball!
