MANAGUA, Nicaragua — The Women’s and Men’s Softball competitions at the Managua 2017 Central America Games begin today at the Hugo Chavez, Roberto Clemente, and ENEL stadiums in the Nicaraguan capital.

Four teams will play in the Women’s event — World’s No 20 Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Panama — and will play a double round robin.

In the Men’s competition, six national teams will compete — No. 18 Guatemala, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama — and will play a single round robin.

At the conclusion of the round robin phase, the top four teams from each competition (male and female softball) will advance to a single page playoff system to be played Thursday, 7 December.

In the last Central American Games in San Jose 2013, Guatemala claimed the Gold medal both in the Women’s and Men’s events. In the women’s competition, Guatemala beat El Salvador by 13-3 in the final, while the Bronze went to Belize. In the men’s, Guatemala defeated Panama by 8-3 in the final to win the Gold, while Nicaragua claimed the Bronze medal.
