Celebrating a year of success, H.E. Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, came to watch a game of the Abu Dhabi Softball League early in May. His visit showed his support for the league, which he is the patron of, and provided some great motivation for the teams on the field before the final the following week.

As the league has now finished its second season, the number of winners has doubled as well. Growing in popularity, two leagues – one competitive and one recreational – were established this season and therefore two champions were crowned.
