June 3rd and 4th saw the annual Tartan Tourament softball played at Cartha Queens Park RFC. I managed to miss the bad weather on the Saturday and went along for the usual entertaining day on the Sunday.

Congratulations to the winning team, the Legends of Filth, who retained the title after beating the Hairy Coos in the repeat of last year’s final.

The Central Scotland Softball League held it’s annual multi team tournament at Cartha Queens Park Rugby Club on 4th & 5th June. The weather was very hot and the games were as much fun as ever.

After two full days play the tournament came down to a close and hard fought final between the Hairy Coos and the eventual winners, the Legends of Filth.

I was delighted to take up an invitation to cover this annual softball tournament at Lochinch over the weekend. Nine teams competed over the two full days, one day sunshine, one day rain, and the event finished with a nailbiting final which went to a second extra innings before the Hairy Coos edged past the Souls to take the victory.

This was a great fun weekend. It’s a great mixed sport and well worth anyone trying. Click here for more info.
