Martensville Slo-Pitch League Hosts Another Successful Plastic Bat & Ball Weekend

by Jocelyn Ottenbreit

The Martensville Slo-Pitch league hosted their annual 24-team Plastic Bat & Ball tournament from April 20 – 22 at the Martensville Curling Rink.


Every year there is a waiting list to get into this much anticipated tournament that is played with plastic bats and kid gloves; however, since the COVID pandemic, gloves have no longer been used to help prevent the spreading of germs.


This year celebrated 26 years of hosting the tournament in Martensville which was originally started by the ‘Go-Getters’, a group of friends who played slo-pitch in the league for many years and worked effortlessly for seven years raising outstanding amounts of money to contribute back to the city before passing it on to the Martensville Slo-Pitch committee in 2003.


This fun tourney is a great fundraiser for the league that hosts 40 teams who play Sunday to Thursday evenings throughout their regular season. Funds raised through Plastic Bat & Ball over the years have been used towards upgrades at the slo-pitch diamonds by Kinsmen Park such as covered dugouts, deck, playground equipment, maintenance, as well as work done to the main building, bar building and everything inside; including the walk-in cooler, ice machine, etc.


Thanks to everyone who once again came out to support this event.
