“Warm, sunny days are right around the corner and so is another fun filled spring softball season,” said Pinto. “Nothing promotes camaraderie and teamwork like a great game of softball.”
According to Pinto, the town’s men’s softball league is widely respected and offers players the thrill of competition and a great form of exercise.
“Not only is the league very well organized, but players will get to play on fields that many consider to be among the finest in the country,” he said. “These night-time softball games offer friendly competition and a great recreational and social outlet for all participants.”
The men’s softball league generally plays Monday through Thursday, with games starting between 8 and 9 p.m., in addition to the occasional Saturday game. Game times and locations will vary throughout the season.
