Local softball is ending its regular season with four key match-ups.
Week eight of the 2014 Fall Adult Coed Softball League finishes at the Field of Dreams on Thursday night. At 6:30 p.m., a B League contest pits Dart against the UBS Swingers on field three, while the Intertrust Supernovas challenge the Cayman National All Stars in a C League battle on field four. At 8:15 p.m., another interleague match features Bud Light against the UBS Swingers on field three, while YMCA We’ve Got The Runs clash with Al La Kebab Hitmen for B League superiority.
Coming into this week, Dart, 4-6, sat at the bottom of division two in the B League, while rivals UBS had an identical 4-6 record. Boris Brady and Intertrust, 7-3, were atop the C League while Cayman National, 3-7, were fourth out of five teams. Bud Light are third in the C League at 5-3-1. Rhonda Kelly and YMCA, 7-4, topped division one of the B League while division rivals Al La Kebab were fourth at 3-6.
The last available standings show a number of interesting facts. The Tower Titans, 10-0, are the only unbeaten team in the competition and sit three games ahead of The A-Team, 7-3, atop the A League. The Titans have scored the most runs, 184, so far this season. Rackam’s Crabbies, 7-1-1, have the league’s best defense with only 75 runs allowed. Of the 21 competing teams, only the PwC Sluggers, 1-9, have fewer than two victories. The accountants have a league-low 77 runs scored and surrendered a league-high 213 runs.
The playoffs start the week of Oct. 26 and last for three weeks, ending the week of Nov. 16.
The Cayman Islands Little League Association organizes the league. The association will be holding its Annual General Meeting next month and is eager to find people with fresh enthusiasm. In a statement, the group said, “The AGM has been rescheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 12, at 6 p.m. at the Field of Dreams Clubhouse.
Light refreshments will be served. All members of the association, which includes all registered players in the coed league, are encouraged to attend.
“The association is keen to try and get some new blood involved in the organization of its programs and is inviting people interested in serving either on a board level or a committee level to come to the AGM and get involved.”
