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!”.

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.
The Final 2014 Gold and Silver Bracket Games have been determined. Three-time defending champion Canton will play Ellington for the Gold Championship Game, and the CT Tides will play Bristol for the Silver Championship Game. Both games are set for July 27, 2014 at 3pm. The Gold Championship Game is at Canton High School, and the Silver Championship is at River Road Field in Canton, CT. Feel free to come on down to watch championship softball, CTWSL-style!
Due to weather related issues, the Gold and Sliver Championship games have been moved up an hour to 3pm. Please make a note of it if you’re planning to attend…we’d love to see you!
The schedule for the 2014 Connecticut Women’s Softball League 2014 Schedule has been posted on line. The Tournament, set for Sunday, July 27, 2014 (weather permitting), begins with Round 1 games at 9am, and is expected to run through 6pm, with an awards ceremony at the end.
