The University of Southampton Baseball and Softball Team welcomes both men and women to join and compete in both Baseball (The National University Baseball League and the Spring/Fall Cup) and Softball competitions.
A lot of the team joined as total novices so no experience is necessary but you'll pick it up quickly thanks to expert coaching provided as part of the affiliation with the local city teams. Training is every Sunday in the Old Sports Hall followed by a session at Wide Lane on the baseball diamond. All equipment needed to start playing the sport is provided by the society including gloves.
The Mustangs are now also a softball team! Competing in Spring Softball tournaments and Varsity against Portsmouth. It is a mixed sport with no experience required to play.
The team is not just about but sport but also socialising. The team organise weekly socials of a variety of themes and activities so there's always something for someone to join in on.
These are the current membership plans offered by Baseball and Softball, although many groups offer a free period for new members to try out their group.
Year Membership (£45) A yearly membership provides a contribution towards match and tournament expenditure such as umpire fees and transport costs and is essential for the club to run. It also helps to cover the equipment required for everyone new to the game to train and play right away.
Players cannot play at tournaments until membership is paid. A free period of 1 month is offered to all new members. A very cheap membership for an AU team!
