Come play baseball and softball in Copenhagen!
Softball is quite similar to Baseball, but played on a smaller field with a larger ball. The object of the game is to hit the ball with a bat and to run from one base to the next until you end up back at home. Whether you are familiar with the game already, dream of hitting a home-run, feel the need to get out and socialize, or just want to satisfy your curiosity by trying on a mitt and running around a bit, please feel free to join us.
We're proud to announce that Copenhagen Softball/Baseball Club now consists of a Women's team - The Urban Achieverettes - to go along with the Men's Div.2 softball team - The Urban Achievers - who also happen to be the 2011 Danish National Champions of Baseball.
Another Season to Remember...
Great things happened on the Sandlot this 2013 season! A group of talented, friendly, and focused females played in the Danish Women's Softball Tournament for the first time ever. Way to go, ladies! And proud we are of all of them.
As for the men's Urban Achievers softball team, the season ended brilliantly! With several teams vying for second place overall, your big city sluggers swept the final day in victory: The Achievers finished in 2nd place with a final record of 14-6!
The Achievers also played in the annual Danmarks Baseball Cup in Flensburg, Germany. UA made a miraculous comeback, but fell just short. Final score: Team West: 20 - 19 : Achievers

The Sandlot Situation
The entire Copenhagen Softball/Baseball club stands to lose our beloved Sandlot for next season, once again forced off our own grounds due to construction of artificial turf for football (see Bryggebladets article about us: Idræt er andet end fodbold, p.2).
This aggression will not stand! Thus, we embark on another adventure: to find/make a BASEBALL/Softball FIELD for next season, 2014! Your help and support will be most appreciated.
