Edinburgh One day

Edinburgh Softball Leagues 1st one day tournament kicked of at Warriston playing fields on the 9th July with 8 teams entered.

Our plan was to recreate the league handicap cup but in a one day format – playing a handicap system with teams getting a seeding and run/s start against the higher seeded team, we also played a timed game format starting with a 1 ball 1 strike count on the batter and setting a run limit max of 5 runs per inning which was to keep the scores close.

Teams entered for the Day were :

Teams Run Start
Souls 0
Storks 1
Haar Hitter 2
Demons 4
Bolts 4
Nuts / Tartan Sox 5
Capitals 5
Vandals 9

Teams were split into two round robin brackets with Souls, Haar Hitters, Bolts and Capitals in Group A and Storks, Demons, Nuts and Vandals in Group B from league seedings

Capitals 15 Bolts 14 Vandals 17 Nut/Sox 16
