Misfits call for more players to join for fun

SOFTBALL: They are one of the only Intercity Softball clubs without an A-grade team, but the aptly-named Misfits are leaving it all on the diamond every week.

The Hervey Bay club fields teams in the B-grade Ladies and Men's competition.

Both teams have played just twice due to wet weather and a bye. The women are 1-1 while the men are yet to win a game.

Part of that reason is due to player numbers. With just seven male players, Misfits have struggled to plug the gaps in the field and boast a shorter lineup than the other Intercity Softball teams.

Misfits coach Glenn Jansz is not overly concerned by results. He said B-grade was a channel for junior players to earn experience against higher-quality opposition.

"We are on the hunt for more players. Generally it's a pathway for juniors, but it's also for the dads to come out an play a game," Jansz said.

"It is difficult to find players. With kids of that age, they generally have part time jobs and work on some Saturdays so they can't commit to every week, and with older players it can be range of things.

"But we're after any players, we might get some more juniors but would love some of the dads as well."

Misfits's men face Terrors on Saturday while the women will take on Goolas, both at 3.45pm.
