Co-eds swinging again

The 2011 winter season of the
Cayman Islands Little League Association adult co-ed softball programme starts
up again on 17 January. All the games take place at the Field of Dreams, with
most of them on weeknights, but some on weekends.

Programme coordinator Alan Markoff
expects a record number of teams to participate this season. “Our softball
programme is becoming increasingly popular for businesses who want to give
their employees something healthy and fun to do that also helps with team
building,” he said.

The programme consists of three
leagues for different levels of play. “The A-League is generally for experienced
players and is pretty competitive,” Markoff said. “The C-League is really for
players with little or no experience and is more about just having fun at the
ballpark.  The B-League has some very
good players and is more competitive, but the skill level of the teams isn’t
quite up to the A-league’s standards.”

The adult co-ed winter season runs
through late April with teams playing 12 regular season games plus play-offs.
Weeknight games typically start at 8:15, but some start earlier at 6:30.
Weekend games take place either on Saturday afternoons, Sunday mornings or
Sunday evenings.

Anyone wishing to put a team into
the programme must attend a mandatory captain’s meeting on Monday 10 January at
7pm at the Field of Dreams Clubhouse. Team fees of CI$1,250 are due at the
captain’s meeting. Markoff said the programme was open to individual players as
well. “I can usually find teams for anyone interested in playing.”
