FASTBALL 45

Fastball-45-logo-126

 
 
FASTBALL 45  is innovative and dynamic! An exciting new product with modifications to provide a higher paced and intense version of softball for both male and females.
 
The concept is designed to enhance the best parts of the game with higher frequency. To achieve this state of play traditional rules have been broken and radicalised to; increase the amount of ball in play, increase double plays, scoring opportunities and the points system itself.

The Fastball 45 2019 competition will be an Auckland based model with intentions to create a national product from next season on.

We are very fortunate to have the support of SKY SPORT who will broadcast all games over three weekends in November.
