The All Stars Fastpitch League is a brand-new concept designed to promote and develop fastpitch softball in the UK.
The concept will be brought to life with two teams of specially-selected female players who will compete in the inaugural competition at the National Baseball & Softball Complex in Farnham Park, Buckinghamshire, this season.
The first All Stars Fastpitch League game will be held on Saturday 21st May and the second game on Saturday 4th June, with two teams participating this year - the Eagles and the Ravens - led by Great Britain Women’s Fastpitch National Team coaches and made up of players from across the UK, including National Team players, the Great Britain Fastpitch League and other talented fastpitch and slowpitch softball players.
On each date, games will start at 6.45pm following the day’s play in the BSF’s co-ed slowpitch National Softball League (NSL) competition and we invite spectators to come watch this historic league. Unlike similar competitions in the UK, the All Stars Fastpitch League will feature an in-game experience similar to that of a College game – the first of its kind in the UK. Fans are encouraged to turn up early, dress up, bring signs and noisemakers, and enjoy the hospitality from the adjacent Home Plate Bar and Kitchen clubhouse.
Prior to each game, there will be special award presentations conducted by the BSF, honouring recently inducted Softball Europe and British Softball Hall of Famers, and BSF Annual Award recipients, adding to the celebrations.
