The Coach and His Players

For girls, it was Netball and then there was Football. And then the re-birth of the game called Softball. Softball was played widely in the eighties here in Brunei; there were about three or four women's teams but men's took centre stage. However, the softball fever died in the early nineties. But here we are now past 2000; softball is huge. I can safely say, now, the women's teams are on the spotlight much to their delight. Tournaments are organized with widespread media coverage and matches are played every week where both men and women's teams compete. There is even a national team for both men and women being setup. Softball is back!!

Spent over an hour taking some shots at the Jerudong Polo Club field where the National Softball Tournament is being held. It was very hot and my gear was heavy. Didn't get to take that many photos but they're quite enough :) For those interested, more games are to be played this coming sunday. They say it'll be on til August.

And when the ball comes...
I don't know what it is about this photo... but I like it!
