Recap

Despite a strong end-of-season surge that saw Diamonds win seven games in a row to dominate the second half of the season, Newport picked up the last Welsh Ladies Baseball Union Premier Division title in 2019 before the COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic struck, cancelling the 2020 and 2021 seasons. Newport had indeed lost their final game of the season, but finished on 24 points from 12 wins, with Llanrumney second on 22 points from 11 wins and Diamonds third on 20 points from 10 wins. [References: 2]

From those three teams there was a large gap back to Gower A, St. Joseph’s and Canton Cross, who each finished with 12 points from 6 wins and then Railway on 8 points from four wins and Fairwater Ladies who lost all 14 matches. [References: 2]

ABOUT WELSH BASEBALL

Welsh Baseball is a version of Rounders and Baseball played primarily in South Wales, and also in Liverpool, where it is known as English Baseball. It is like a cross between Baseball, Rounders and Cricket. During the latter half of the 19th Century, the famous A.G. Spalding of Major League Baseball fame organised a Baseball Tour of England and Ireland, and in the process played a number of games against English and Welsh Rounders teams, who adopted some of the rules (such as tagging a playerout with the ball and two-handed batting). It kept the poles rather than flat bases and left the diamond in an irregular shape with all four sides unequal in length. Welsh Baseball also has a bat more like a Cricket Bat than a Baseball Bat, and it tapers towards the handle. According to sources in referenced in the articles below, Irish immigrants to Liverpool and South Wales were numerous among the Working Classes playing the game in the 20th Century. It is still played in South Wales and Liverpool but is now mostly a Children’s and Teenagers Game. [References: 3]

Report

There were two different winners of the Malvern & Western Ladies Rounders League Summer Division 1 from 2015 to 2018, with Smoothly Does It and Smart Ladies alternating as Champions. Smoothly Does it winning the League in 2015 and 2017, and Smart Ladies Champions in 2016 and 2018.

The Division had 9 teams in 2015, with Runaways relegated and replaced by the promoted Rubber Duckies and Tornadoes for 2016. After 2016 there was a reduction in the top division from 10 teams to 7, as Jaspers, Fireflies, Tornadoes, and Anchor Gold were all relegated and only Legless promoted. Legless gave Smart Ladies a run for their money in 2018 after Tornadoes were re-promoted back to division 1 in place of Olivers Army.

Besides Smart Ladies and Smoothly Does It, other teams to not be relegated from Division 1 during this period (2015 to 2018) were G&T and Marlbank Misfits. As can be seen by the team names the league is played in the same spirit as recreational coed Softball. [References: 1-4]

ABOUT GAA ROUNDERS

Rounders is an Irish and British version of Softball and Baseball, and thought to be the ancestor of both. It was first codified in Ireland as part of the Original GAA Charter of 1884, but not organised until 1958. It is a Bat and Ball (also known as Safe Haven) sport whereby the batter attempts to hit a ball thrown at him or her by a pitcher or bowler and then attempts to run around the bases back home.

About GAA Rounders Senior Ladies Championship 2022

The 2022 GAA Rounders Senior Ladies Championship features Ulster teams Erne Eagles (Cavan), Connacht teams Breaffy (Mayo), Michael Glaveys (Roscommon) and Athenry (Galway) and Leinster teams Limekiln (Dublin), Glynn Barntown and Adamstown (both Wexford), and Bagenalstown and Cuchulainn (both Carlow).

About GAA Rounders

Rounders is an Irish and British version of Softball and Baseball, and thought to be the ancestor of both. It was first codified in Ireland as part of the Original GAA Charter of 1884, but not organised until 1958. It is a Bat and Ball (also known as Safe Haven) sport whereby the batter attempts to hit a ball thrown at him or her by a pitcher or bowler and then attempts to run around the bases back home.
