PMMI 5th Corporate Slow Pitch Competition

K100 for every home run hit

The PMMI 5th Corporate Slow Pitch Competition, which started on Saturday, has the support of 29 companies for this season.

The president of the PMWSA said the competition, which is now in its fifth season, has already collected about a thousand kina from last season’s grand final.

“The theme of the Port Moresby Women’s Softball Association corporate slow pitch is ‘Hit a homerun against HIV and AIDS’,” said Jenny Paak.

32 teams to participate in slow pitch comp

The Port Moresby Women’s Softball Association says 32 teams have been pooled into 4 pools.

The 7 weekends of corporate softball is expected to start on June 9th, with three extra weekends to be dedicated to playoffs and finals.

Training grounds at the softball precinct at Boroko have not yet been confirmed due to ground maintenance, hence the association has gone ahead and confirmed a training spot at the Sir Guise Stadium right in front of the Indoor Complex.
