With support from Mohawk College's softball program, UTM Fastpitch is pleased to bring the Early Bird Wekeend to the field in 2019. The first weekend in May was typically the weekend in which the Brantford Bobcats would run their tournament weekend, however in 2018 the Bobcats moved to Victoria Day Weekend (successful Queen of Diamonds event), which left a whole the first week that teams could get onto the field. Mohawk College ran an event last spring, and this year UTM will lead the way by offering a similar event to the one offered by the Mountaineer's last season.
Early Bird weekend offers a 5GG, no medals, no standings. A low base entry fee of $200 to cover the diamonds, and then teams pay for umpires on field each game. There are no Friday games, so teams can plan to play 3-games Saturday and 2-games Sunday. U19 division is full, and will run out of Drumbo & Princeton. U16 is also near capactity and will run out of diamonds in the Brantford area. In order for the event to fly a few additional U14 teams would be needed.
