Winnemac Park Neighbors, Ravenswood: Co-Ed Summer Softball

Activities in the park include park district sponsored activities, but also privately run activities hosted by organizations that rent space in our beautiful park.  One of those organizations is Ravenswood Catholic Young Adults (RCYA), who are hosting a 16 inch Summer Softball League this year. But, you don’t need be a member, or even Catholic, to participate.  (You do need to be an adult, however.) The organizers describe the league like this:

We are a social and recreational league comprised of women and men from the Parishes of Lincoln Avenue: St. Matthias/Transfiguration, Our Lady of Lourdes, St. Alphonsus, St. Benedicts and Queen of Angels. Game time is Monday evenings at 6:30pm & 7:30 pm at Winnemac Park, on the corner of Argyle & Damen. Opening day is May 18, 2015. The season will conclude with playoffs in August.

Players must be least 21 years of age, but participants do not have to be Catholic to play. ALL ability levels are needed: everyone plays and no one sits! Women may use mitts. Only requirements to join are the desire to have fun, enjoy the outdoors, and meet some great people.The registration fee is $70.00, and includes payments for the equipment, fields, umpires, t-shirts and free pizza after every game at our sponsor bar, K’s Dugout, located at 1938 W Foster Avenue!
