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.
