History

Guernsey Softball Association was established in 1936. It all began in 1935 when Canadian Duncan McMillan moved to the Island and introduced baseball to the locals.  They eagerly took up the sport and soon the "Big Nine Baseball Club" was born. A year later in 1936 the move to softball was made and the Guernsey Softball Association (GSA) was established. Currently it remains one of the oldest and longest running softball associations in existence. Early GSA records  indicate teams such as the Big Nine, Maple Leafs, Tigers and Casuals were early league winners.
Even the five year German Occupation couldn't prevent early hard-core fastpitch players from playing the game they loved. GSA annuls show the only years fastpitch was not played on the Island was 1940, 1944, and 1945. The German Military occupied the island from June 1940 to May 1945, and according to the book "Isolated Island," written by V.V. Cortvriend, "sports were allowed to continue on a limited basis." And play they did. For three of those years, fastpitch softball was indeed played in Guernsey - amazing! The Centrals, Casuals, and the Big Nine all were league champions during Guernsey's dark period.
