Softball WA’s Awards ‘Night of Nights’ was held at Leederville Sports Bar, Subiaco FC on the Friday, 3 May 2019. Over 200 Players, Officials, parents, VIP’s, Life Members, volunteers and guests attended the annual event dedicated to showcase the achievements on and off the diamond in the 2018-19 season.

Massive thanks to Jill Green, Marietjie Haereroa & Shirley Schneider for coordinating this event and to Russ Clark CEO for MC the event. Their amazing work behind the scenes made for a great night for all in attendance. Special mention to Mary Brown for taking photos of award recipients on the night. Your efforts do not go unnoticed.

This night is about celebrating the achievements of not only our State Team players but also the achievements of many people who have contributed to our sport in WA for a very long period of time. It was also an opportunity to congratulate the 37 Players & Officials that were named in Australian teams after the Nationals in January, be proud of how far you have come and what you have achieved. It is also a night of great opportunity to catch-up with everyone and share stories or memorable moments from the year; but also for some, stories from many, many years ago.
