Ok, after much discussion we have come up with the idea of starting our own "league", in which a group of us can meet at a set time, travel over to Randall's Island, play some softball, and then share some drinks and good times at the Bohemian Beer Garden.
You can see our discussion here: http://www.whyleaveastoria.com/forum/topics/softball-league?comment...
We are now putting together an email list to see how much interest we can gather. Nothing is set in stone yet, as we would need at least 20 people each time to get a game going. So this is in the very preliminary stages of planning.
It would be a very fun way to get together and get to know fellow Astorians, and to just basically have fun. Also to get out in the sun this summer. =D
I hope something comes of this!

When would the league be starting? and how about how often would games be?
it's ok if we don't know yet... just wasn't sure if anything had been decided.
I miss softball. I am a high school softball official, so I have a mask, shin guards etc. but I don't want to ump.
You do need a permit for Randalls Island, but there are many fields.
