Parks and Recreation Adds Two New Fall Softball Leagues

The Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department Athletics Office announced today the addition of two new adult slow pitch softball leagues for this fall. The "50 and Over" and "5 on 5 on 5" leagues will play games from August 9 to late October, weather permitting. Registration for the "50 and Over" league is open now, and registration for the "5 on 5 on 5" league opens July 1.

The "50 and Over" league is for men and women that are 50 years old and older by December 31, 2019. The fee is $48 per player, and the registration deadline is Sunday, July 21. This league will primarily follow USA senior softball rules. Team drafts are July 23.

The "5 on 5 on 5" league is a new format that features three teams in one game: an outfield team an infield team, and a batting team. Five-player teams rotate throughout the field as each inning passes. Coed teams play Thursday nights, and men's teams play Sundays. The registration fee is $175 per team for eight regular season games. The registration deadline is July 28.
