Looking back in time Hespeler, Galt and Preston each had their own youth fastpitch (Softball) league.  Over time the Preston League disappeared, Galt became Cambridge Minor Softball and Hespeler kept on their path.  For many years Cambridge and Hespeler have co-existed together in one city respecting each other’s playing areas and from time to time meeting up and discussing some sort of league amalgamation.  The Joining of leagues never happened because neither wanted let go of their independence and self-interests.


Because of caring and hard-working volunteers on both sides, Cambridge Minor Softball and Hespeler Minor Softball are now together under one volunteer leadership group.  I am very proud of everyone involved for putting the players and families first.  This is going to be so beneficial to the youth of Cambridge.

What does this mean for CMSI and HMSA?

For the 2022 season each league will continue to operate individually with the same typical length of their season.  Both will benefit from our pooled resources and players. This is an exciting first step to putting our city back on the map for Fastpitch.
