It came down to the last day of league play and the last games of the season to decide the Champs. So here they are, the 2018 BISL League Champions BOOTLEGGERS. Congrats to Bootleggers and their Captain Eli Rifkind. It's been a great year for these heavy hitters, not only winning league but also claiming the One-Pitch Tournament crown. They'll be going for the trifecta this weekend at the BISL End of Season double elimination tournament.

2nd Place MSPORT.
3rd, 4th, 5th Place will be determined once runs are calculated due to three way tie between Tilac, BMW and Sharks.
6th Place Mercenaries formerly known as Free Agents.


Welcome to another exciting season of the BISL 2018. We’re happy to have a new home field at the American School of Bangkok (ASB Green Valley Campus) and would like to thank Tim Martin of the Bootleggers for driving the partnership. ASB and Tim have shown a real commitment to work with BISL for years to come by making physical changes to their campus field and share the overall goal to grow the sport of softball in Bangkok. ASB will also be providing concessions that will sell food and beverages (bring your own beer). However, there is NO smoking.  If you absolutely need to smoke the request is to please do so along the far outfield wall by the Khlong.  There are boarding students living on campus who’ll be walking around and even watching games and we’d like to continue to set a positive example. 

This season we welcome a new team the Free Agents. They are a collective of new players to the BISL, ASB players and as more players continue to join our league they’ll be invited to play with them. As this team is still short of enough players to field a full team, each week on Friday any other players from the league on any current team may sign-up via a Google Doc and play. Kevin who’s assisting in managing the Free Agents will open up the doc on Friday prior to that Sunday’s games and it’ll be first come first serve based on the number of players needed. Current players contact your managers to get access to the Google Doc. You may also request to change teams if you’d like and join the Free Agent’s full time. If you are a new player interested in joining the Free Agents then please go to CONTACT BISL and send us an email.

Congratulations to the Bootleggers, Champions of the 2018 One-Pitch Tournament. We look forward to seeing everyone on Sunday and throughout the rest of 2018 BISL Season.

Good luck!

Anthony P Vanarajah and his mates from Bad Bulls Softball are throwing their First International Slo Pitch this July. These boys are enthusiastic, have made alot of friends and took alot of notes at the other shindings on the circuit the past few years so I am sure their first will be well organized and a ton of fun. They already have an impressive roster of teams entered and the final slots are filling fast. Contact Anthony for details!
