The Abaco Softball Association (ASA) recently announced that the 2014 softball season will open on April 25. ASA Secretary Juanyette Curry said that all team and player fees must be submitted by April 11 along with team rosters because no teams will be allowed to play after the deadline.
Curry was pleased to add that insurance fees will be deducted from the player fees.
Following the season’s opening, an Abaco Softball Tournament will be held in May, and then several players will be travelling to Nassau in June for a National All Star Tournament. Creter’s Bulldogs players will go on to participate in a tournament in Spanish Wells on July 4-5.
Curry made an urgent appeal to those interested in assisting the ASA throughout the season to also assist with the National Round Robin Tournament scheduled for October on Abaco.
She said they are hopeful that the softball fields in Hope Town and Cooper’s Town are properly maintained to host games at those locations this year in addition to the Murphy Town Ball Field.
For the 2014 season, Haziel McDonald is now the Abaco Softball Association (ASA) President. He is assisted by Mark Douglas, vice president; Laura Albury, treasurer; George Cornish, assistant treasurer; Juanyette Curry; secretary; and Densil Pinder, asst. secretary.
