Armed with great expectations and a view of bringing home the gold, Abaco Imaging-Creter’s Bulldogs and Abaco Groceries Diamond Dollz attended this year’s Bahamas Softball Federation’s (BSF) National Round Robin Championships from Oct. 30 to Nov. 2 on Banker’s Field at the Baillou Hills Sporting Complex.
The Abaco Softball Association (ASA) held an All Abaco Tournament on June 20-21 at the Murphy Town Ball Field inviting teams out of New Providence and Spanish Wells to be a part of the softball action. Fans packed almost every bleacher at the park to support their respective teams.
Following their historic win at the Bahamas Softball Federation's (BSF) National Round-Robin Tournament last month, the Creter’s Bulldogs organized a grand celebration on Nov. 16 at the Murphy Town Ball Field inviting fans on Abaco to celebrate with them. Leading up to the event, T-shirts were sold ensuring that all supporters were well represented in their Bulldogs’ attire. Free food, drinks and entertainment were provided, and a recap of the championship game was shown on the big screen for everyone to enjoy.
The Abaco softball timeline spans 41 years for the popular sport. For 32 of those years, Abaco’s men’s and women’s softball teams have been affiliated with the Bahamas Softball Federation (BSF). As Creter’s Bulldogs Sponsor Christopher Roberts recalled on Nov. 4, it was his brother Telford Roberts who emphasized the importance of being a part of the federation.
