Season Opener – 17 May 2021

It’s finally here! On the 17th May 2021 the Edinburgh Softball League will finally get back to the diamond.

Opening day will see the Souls take on the Marabou Storks in the Premier League, while the Burns’ Batters will play their inaugural game against the Vultures in Division 1.

The league has been working hard to ensure that our return to play is in line with the current Scottish Government guidance and Baseball Softball UK’s Return to Play Plan.

All teams will be required to follow the league’s COVID rules, team captains should make sure they fully understand these rules prior to their first game.

Let’s hope those gloves aren’t too dusty, it’s time to get those home runs flying!

*Covid Update – 2020 Season Cancelled*

*Covid Update – 2020 Season Cancelled*

Edinburgh Softball League has made the decision to cancel the 2020 softball season. With the government guidance that team sport in Scotland may not fully return until Late Aug or even late September, we feel it’s better to call it now.
Like us, I’m sure we are all disappointed, but safety must come first. If things do have a quick turnaround in August, we will look to hire fields and play bounce pickup games if we have the numbers.
We hope that by the start of April or May next year team sports will be back in full flow and our Edinburgh Softball League will be back in full swing for 2021.
