Leicester Blue Sox will be starting their own co-ed slowpitch league this year, with all members aged 11-adult getting involved on designated family softball nights during the Spring and Summer at Western Park.

New team logos have been designed and our ‘Saints’ and ‘Dragons’ softball tees are in production and due to arrive shortly.

The first competitive softball action of 2016 gets going on Sunday 3 April when the East Midlands Softball League host their ‘First Ball’ slowpitch tournament at Charnwood College, Leicester.

We have entered the Dragons into this event, who will participate in the ‘rec tournament’.

The confirmed Dragons schedule is as follows:

9am Dragons v Cougars

11am Dragons v Misfits

1pm Dragons v York University

3.15pm or 4.15pm Semi-Final

5.15pm (if successful) Final

Our squad of male and female players currently include:

Joel Upton

Martin Andrews

Chris Mee

James Wallace

Hugo Franklin

Neil Farr

Jade Cerff

Nade Townsend

Liz Morgan-Danvers

Kerry Ramplin

Saskia Davies

Laura Campbell-Adams

We still have room for a few more players, so if you are interested in suiting up for the Dragons please email us via:

There will be a warm-up softball game at Western Park this Sunday 27 March (10am-12pm) to help us prepare for First Ball and we also have our first baseball and softball weeknight practice arranged for Wednesday 30 March (6pm-dusk).

With regional slowpitch tournaments, inter club family softball nights, local fastpitch games and the Great Britain Fastpitch League all on deck, we are expecting a big season of softball at the club!
