The Malta Baseball & Softball Assocation (MABS) has recently announced their 2011 baseball and softball season schedule.  Last Sunday, the Women’s Fast-Pitch Softball League began, with the Mellieha Curves and the Qormi Devils Softball facing each other at the Marsa Baseball & Softball Field.  The Devils constantly drove in runs throughout the course of the game, beating the Curves 27 by 17 as the season’s opener. 

Sunday 6th February marks the Opening Day for the baseball nationals. Both Seniors 2nd Division League and Seniors National League will be competing on the day.  The Mellieha Rookies will host the Mavericks to kick off the 2nd Division League, while the reigning National League champions, the Mellieha Northenders, will face their rivals, the Mustangs.  Both games will be held at the Marsa Baseball & Softball Field and will start at 11AM and 1PM respectively.

The Cadets Under-16 Baseball Season begins on Thursday the 10th of February, with four teams participating this year.  The Mellieha Grand Slammers will host the Panthers at 10AM while the second game will be a village derby between the Mellieha Blue Jays and the Mellieha Red Sox, starting at 12PM.  Both Cadet games will be held at the Marsa Baseball & Softball Field. 

The public are welcome to come and cheer on Malta’s baseball nationals this ‘Opening Day’ Sunday.
