Hurlers will wind up local batsmen

Fast-pitch softball is storming the field again.

The Cayman Islands Softball Association will be having its annual general meeting to select an executive committee for the 2013 season. The meeting will be on Friday, 22 February, at 5.30pm at Sunset House.

In a statement, the association states it plans to start play next month. The statement reads: “We plan to start our male and female leagues on 9 March. We have invited a male and female team from Jamaica for the weekend opening and we are waiting on their decision.”

Like last year, matches are slated to take place in West Bay, next to the Jimmy Powell cricket oval.

Heading into 2013, focus will be on the West Indie Marine Patriots. Fresh off their 2012 triumph, the Patriots are Cayman’s two-time reigning champions. The Patriots dominated last year’s competition with 19 wins, five losses and zero ties behind home run threats Bradimir Robinson (eight home runs), Johnny Johnson Sr. (six) and Peter Whittaker (five).

Aside from the Patriots, the other competing men’s teams included Donald Watler’s Latinos and Jose’s Escape Pirates. The women’s division includes the CNB/APS Security Team Extreme and talents such as Breana Welds, Eleanor Berry and Jahzenia Thomas.
