Fun softball leagues?

softball closeupSummer emails:

A friend of mine would really like to get involved with a softball league that's fun and not too competitive. He's not a bad player but he's afraid he's not good enough to be welcomed by some of the more competitive leagues out there. Also, he's gotten the impression that without an "in," he won't be able to find an opening.
Any ideas?

We fear that Summer's friend may have missed his chance for this season, but maybe there are some mid-summer leagues that are starting up. If anything, tips on good leagues will help out for next summer.

Got a suggestion? Please share!

it's run decently well and is a lot of fun.
too late for spring/summer, but fall ball is right around the corner.

Great recourse stu, thanks! Any idea when registration starts for fall ball?

It's too late to join my softball league- Lynn's Softball League http://www.lynnssoftball.com/ It's a really fun beer league that starts up in May. Check it out then. You can be a "free agent."

I am manager of a pick-up (nonleague) coed softball team which plays for fun (slow pitch, of modest talent - and that may be gilding the lily) that plays during the week at 6 pm. We play 5 or 6 other teams of simlar ineptitude, er, I mean talent. We would welcome other teams or individual players (either male or female, but especially women) of similar ilk. If interested, you can reach me at chasepugliese@verizon.net.. Swing for the fences! Chase Pugliese

Summer, I don't know when fall ball registration is, check the forums every now at the site I linked to and they will announce it. ..good luck!

See my message above. My new email address is cpugliese2@nycap.rr.com

We are currently signing up teams for the Guilderland Co-Ed Media League. It's a very well run league that plays on great fields with umpires and a fun level of competition. The cost per team is probably the cheapest in the area.

What can we do to register in a softball league? We are a Christian group and want to form a team of softball.

We will appreciate any information that you could give us

Thank you.

... It's heartening to see that the neighborhood is seeing early stages of revival - I think a lot of cities are starting to realize the potential and charm of historic warehouse and factory buildings. I'm sort of conflicted because although I want to see them all saved, I like the sort of gritty time-worn quality of peeling paint, dirty brick, and faded signage...
