Softball Leinster would like to remind and encourage all teams to attend the 2012 AGM on Saturday the 20th of October in the Woolshed Bar on parnell street from 2pm.
This year Softball Leinster introduced something new to the match reports. We added a home and away MVP and asked the captains to nominate the best player from the oppositon for that game. They could only pick one person, Male or Female. Criteria was left open but generally we were looking for players who made great plays, hit well or generally made the difference in the game.
At 3pm to 3:30pm The boys, Declan and Breffini, from "On the Ball" on Dublin City FM (103.2 FM) will be talking to Julie and Steven about the 2012 Leinster League season.

So here we are on a muggy finals day in Pardubice. There is plenty of cloud cover at the moment but we expect the sun to burn through and hope that the Dynamoe bats will be as scorching as the weather (groooooan…). There is disappointment across the camp that we are not featuring in the page play offs for the first time in our experience at this tournament but there is still a strong desire to show this Czech team that we can hit and we look forward to finishing the tournament with a good solid winning performance.
Well the day here has not started well with thunderstorms over night and a lot of heavy rain resulting in the game between Chromies & Lisicke being postponed. As we are hear waiting for the pitch to be prepared the grounds crew are out trying to use sponges to mop up the excess water under the tarps and in true Irish style no sooner that they take the water off the clay, it starts to rain heavier!
The second last group game for Dodder Dynamoes versus the Czech Team DNace sees Ciaran Darcy wax lyrical once more with Janice Ward finishing off when Ciaran takes to the field in the sixth inning.
The reports keep coming in from Dodder and are great play by play reads. Todays game five report was written by Ciaran Darcy although seemed tohave been edited by the Wards. Photos taken by Janice and Brian Connolly.

This report on Dodders Dynamoes 4th game against Chromies from London was written by Janice Ward before she made an appearance herself in the last two innings.
Dodder Dynamoes sent in this report of their game three against the local team Pasos Pardubice. Written by their own Ciaran Darcy.
Dodder Dynamoes first day of ECCS pitted them against the Lisicke, a slovenian team that is there to win it and the Sunville Tigers, a Belgian team at their first ECCS tournament. Dynamoes must finish in the top four after the group stage to have a chance of a medal, so require a minimum of four wins and will have to come out of day one with a 1-1 record.
Dodder Dynamoes are in the Czech Republic after flying in yesterday, where on Tuesday morning in Pardubice, they start their campaign for a second European title.
Dodder Dynamoes have struggled in the Czech Republic with both the heat and their bats but they still have a chance and an opportunity to show Europe what we know they can do.
