The Italian Softball League has arrived at Week 17 of the 18-week regular season schedule. Legnano has enjoyed the lead in the standings throughout most of the season, but Caserta (2009 ISL Champions) has recently matched Legnano's 19 wins and 7 losses record. Third-place Forli is just a half-game off the pace.
Today, Legnano will take on fourth-place La Loggia in what could be called a preview of the playoffs.
The ISL semifinal playoff format is as follows: 1st vs. 4th and 2nd vs. 3rd.
Caserta and Forli will battle it out against each other today in what should significantly help determine the playoff rankings.
In other action around the league, last-place Fermana will host Bollate. While in Sardinia, Nuoro will host Macerata.
