It is mid sea­son for Drumheller’s Adult Soft­ball League teams and things are look­ing up.

“So far the sea­son has been go­ing good, ex­cept for some can­cel l ations be­cause of rain,” says or­ga­nizer Amy DeMille.

This year, the league tried out a new sys­tem for set­ting up games. It is called the “ABC” sys­tem.

“The “A” stands for your com­pet­i­tive teams, “C” be­ing the non com­pet­i­tive teams and “B” are the teams that are will­ing to play both. This sys­tems has caused more va­ri­ety for the com­pet­i­tive teams be­cause there isn’t many com­pet­i­tive teams in the league,” says DeMille. The next big event for the teams is the year end wind up tour­na­ment on Au­gust 19, 20, and 21 week­end. “All the teams in the league are in­vited to par­tic­i­pate, we have 23 teams in to­tal. The tour­na­ment is held at New­cas­tle Beach Ball Di­a­monds. There will be con­ces­sion, beer gar­dens, and a home run derby that we do ev­ery year. There will also be a cash pay­out for the win­ning teams at the end of the tour­na­ment ,” says DeMille.
