Fastpitch Softball is a competitive version of Recreational Mixed Softball, or Baseball, and in USA is primarily a Competitive Women’s version of the game, with a Professional League for women: National Pro Fastpitch.
It differs from the Recreational Coed version of the sport in that the pitching is very fast, and does not have to be in a soft arc like in traditional softball.
The Irish Fastpitch Softball League was started in 2019-20 (although it is currently Coed / Mixed – with an even number of Males and Females), after a decade of Softball Ireland’s Fadtpitch Programme, which included the start of the Women’s Ireland National Team.
There were intended to be Playoffs played, but unfortunately due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic, Week 4 (Playoffs) had to be cancelled.
All matches were played at The National Indoor Arena in Blachardstown, Dublin 15, on the Indoor Turf Pitch.
