BSUK are flying in two top US softball coaches. While in London they will be conducting two evening training sessions for coaches. So if you’re involved in coaching your team, and feel you’d like to learn some new coaching techniques then this is for you.
The sessions will be held at Regent’s Park on the 20th and 21st June from 6:30pm. If you’d like to come along please email communications[at]glsml[dot]co.uk
Please state which day you’d like to attend, the team you play for, and your coaching experience.
If there’s high demand we may have to limit this opportunity to one coach per team.
Captains – you will see in your packs that we will be throwing the official GLSML Firstball Afterparty at the White Hart pub (The Terrace, Riverside, Barnes, London, SW13 0NR). The pub is right across the bridge. Click here for a map.
We have reserved the large upstairs room with the balcony overlooking the Thames, so will be plenty of space for all.
INCLUDED IN THE NIGHT:
* Food provided free of charge (nibbles, sandwiches, etc.)
* Tab behind bar (first 100 people get a free drink! – Beer/Wine/Spirit Mixer)
* Trophy presentation for the tournament winners
* Private bar for the evening.
It’ll be a great way to see off a long day of ball, so make a point to drop in :-)

Welcome to the 2nd-annual GLSML season preview for 2013! While the winter has been arduous and seemingly interminable, we can do nothing but retain some semblance of hope that our fair city is getting it out of its system, with nothing but sunshine from May to August ahead! (Ambitious thought process after our torrential summer last year, I know…)
The purpose of this preview is to serve as a guide for your selections in our “Pick 6” competition, where you can win a cash prize of £40 for yourself and softballs for your team for guessing the most division winners within the GLSML. It’s free to enter for players in the league, so go on and try your luck! Last year’s winner was the Muppets’ Kristen Dodd, who guessed four of the 6 winners correctly.
In the off-season we have seen several compelling storylines emerge that have painted the backdrop of the season to come. We lost one team, had one team fold and reform, and have had plenty of player and captaincy turnover in squads around the league. The ramifications will be immediately noticeable; for example, several relegated teams now have a second chance in their 2012 divisions (Spam, OddSox, Thundercats, Meteors 3).
While the 2012 season was shaped by close competition and a plethora of rainouts, let’s take a moment and have a look at what we can expect from the 2013 season in the GLSML
