Congratulations go out to the CT Tides, the winner of the 2015 CT Women’s Softball League Season End Tournament Gold Bracket!!!
More information to follow soon…
The CT Women’s Softball League will conclude its 2015 season with the Season End Tournament, to be held at Vernon Middle School fields and Ellington High School this Sunday.
For more details, click on the 2015 Schedule tab above. Field information is listed both there, and on the Fields tab above.
The 2015 season will be remembered as a difficult one, as weather did not cooperate with the League. Rain outs forced cancellations and makeup games, and it is a testament to the League coaches that they were able to get in as many games as they did.
That said, this year’s teams proved to be stronger and more competitive than ever. The race for first place among the teams is tighter than ever, with five teams potentially vying for the top spot going into the last weekend. The remaining three teams could still could still conceivably wind up in 4th place. This is the first season the League has ever had every team be so strong and equally balanced; we at the CTWSL applaud both the coaches and players for making this happen.
If you’ve never attended a game, this weekend would be a good time to visit us. Check the 2015 Schedule to see where your favorite team is playing.
The following make-up games have been announced for July 14, 2015:
Ellington at CT Tides at Ellington High School, 6:30pm
West Hartford at CT Mirage at Suffield High School, 6:30pm
Player of the Week honors for June 7th go to Danielle Leone of the Canton team who struck out 12 in a complete game victory to lead Canton to a sweep of Windsor, while also contributing offensively batting .500 on the day and 2 key RBI’s in game one.
There were several other worthy candidates and Honorable Mentions go to Shauna Sullivan of Rocky Hill who was 5-for-8 with a triple, 2 doubles and 5 RBI, and Lauren Esposito of the CT Tides who tossed a 5-inning no-hitter against West Hartford while going 5-for-6 at the plate. Great performances ladies!
Yesterday (June 7th) was a great day to “Play Two” (to quote the legendary Ernie Banks). All of the games got in, and the weather was just perfect, as opposed to our Official Opening Day, when only one game was able to be played due to inclement weather.
If you’re in the area and would like to watch quality fastpitch softball, come down to one of our fields and say, “Hello!”.
The Connecticut Women’s Softball League is pleased to announce that its 2015 season is set to kick off on Sunday, May 31, and end with our Season-End Tournament, scheduled for July 26 (weather permitting). Players’ experiences in the League (our 9th, by the way) have been extraordinarily positive, and many potential players ask us how they can get in on the fun.
If you are an experienced adult female softball player interested in participating, send an e-mail to Assistant League Director Tony Muscarella at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell us about your qualifications or preferences and, with your permission, we’ll post that to our private Free Agent listing.

Congratulations go out to Canton, Connecticut Women’s Softball League’s first four-in-a-row Tournament winner! Coach Charley Batan and his team held off some very tough competition in defeating West Hartford, Rocky Hill, and the Cinderella Ellington team. Powerhouse Canton has now claimed the title for the fourth time in four years.
Perhaps the biggest surprise of the Tournament (after the fact that the sun came out in the afternoon after a very wet morning) was the case of Ellington, a Cinderella team if there ever was one.
Seeded 6 of 6 going into the Tournament, Ellington got to the Gold Bracket Tournament game, and gave eventual winner Canton a fine fight for the first four innings before eventually tiring in the 5th.
Congratulations, Ellington, you certainly deserve it.
We salute Bristol, who won the Silver Bracket in the 2014 Connecticut Women’s Softball League Tournament today, beating the exceptionally talented #1 seed CT Tides.
