For the past several months, I have played softball on Sunday mornings in the western communities with a great bunch of softball players. We don’t require weekly manicuring of the field, baselines, umpires or uniforms. We haven’t felt the need for tryouts, player cuts, an organized league, and trophies, plaques, etc. Everyone is welcome, regardless of age, sex, ability…. We choose up teams each week the old-fashioned way.
I have played in many leagues over the years, and I haven’t enjoyed the game as much as I have with this format. If you would like to play softball for the “love of the game,” e-mail email@example.com.
