About Us Orlando Softball Cricket League (OSCL) was founded in August 2011 by league president Hakim (Tom) Bacchus and Secretary Jainarine (Jai) Baijnauth. In its inaugural season, the league consisted of 10 teams: Blazers, Caribbean, Grizzlies, Hurricanes, Ocala, Ocala Youth, Strykers, Tigers, United, and Westside. OSCL’s kick-off was truly a huge success because of the solid foundation the league was built on. OSCL has sponsorship from local businesses and team members alike. The league has adopted a stringent set of rules, regulations, and by-laws that keeps everything organized on and off the field. All game officials are knowledgeable and all rules are strictly enforced right down to the uniforms.
OSCL was founded on the basic principles of promoting softball cricket in a controlled and structured environment while still maintaining a grass root approach by making participation as cost effective as possible, controlling travel through scheduling geographically by a team location, and creating a competitive balance through various levels of competition. OSCL hopes that this approach will be the main reason for the league growth and success, along with all of the many outstanding and dedicated players, umpires and executive committee that tirelessly commit themselves to OSCL because of their love for the game. It is the number one goal of OSCL executive committee to provide a forum that will promote a positive and rewarding experience for everyone.
