Welcome to the Donkeys
We are a mix slowpitch softball team and play on tournaments as well as in the Diplomatic Softball League.
We see ourself as a fun team, therefore having fun on and around the field is for us just as important as playing fair. With us everyone can enter and play, whether beeing a professional or beginner player.
We also have a licensed coach with Nina to polish our skills.
We reject any kind of racism or exclusion.
If you would like to get to know us, join yourself for a free trial practice or come over with your whole team for one of our tournaments, feel free to send us a mail via the contact form, gladly also in English.
Our homefield is located on the Tempelhofer Feld:
During the Berlin Blockade in 1948/49 the Allies kept west Berlin supplied with an airlift that started from Tempelhof airport. As a US air force airport it became an internationally renowned symbol of the defence of freedom. In 2008 the airport was closed and in 2010 the former airfield opened for the population to use as a recreational and leisure area. (https://gruen-berlin.de/en/tempelhofer-feld/about-the-park)
Since that year the softballfield of Columbia-Sportspark at Tempelhofer Feld is in use again and in october 2018 four different teams play on this field as their homefield. In Berlin the TiB is the the sports club with the most softball teams, if you wanna play fast- or slowpitch, in a mixed or a female team, they can provide the fitting team for everyone. Because the teams play in different softball leagues in Berlin, there are some players who can´t get enough of softball and practice and play in several teams. In the summer semester also a softball course for students in coorperation with the FU Berlin takes place. For more information about the several teams please have a look at the pages of the TiB e.V.
