Co-Ed Softball

June 3, 2013

I noticed more and more communities are starting co-ed softball leagues. I like this idea. With softball entrenched in the high school sport’s scene, more women feel proficient in it and are quite capable of handling themselves in this environment. The games seem to be quite a bit of fun for all those playing, and it is a good spot for a family to spend a summer night. It is also a good way for young unmarried adults to meet the opposite sex and not put themselves on those dreaded websites that promise the perfect matchups. Since softball was disappearing from the local sport scenes, it is a way to revive it and also make it a family’s way to do something together and not have one or the other half of a household out enjoying themselves while the other half is stuck babysitting for the kids. From the scores I see in local newspapers, it seems to be a very competitive adventure and with lots of runs scored it should be run to play and fun to watch. Most of these ball diamonds are in parks so if the kids are just a little bigger they can watch dad or mom for awhile and then go off in a safe area and have some fun of their own. I hope this catches on in more communities and the old family night of fun can expand. A lot of these are church leagues which makes it even better.

South Decatur Elementary School has introduced a new fundraising program called My School Color Run. The My School Color Run program aims to go beyond traditional fundraising. Rather than sell goods, the program aims to engage the entire student body in a fitness initiative that aims to instill a life-long healthy way of living. On Sept. 3, at 9 a.m., the students, staff, and community of South Decatur Elementary School will walk, jog, and run their way toward a healthier life while raising funds for the PTO’s Playground Revitalization Project. The color run will be held at South Decatur Jr-Sr High School, and will be open to the public. This is an untimed fun run. Participants will pass through four color stations throughout the course and end with a massive color toss at the My Color Run Post-Race Party. Participants will be treated to refreshments, music, and fun following the run. Interested participants of all ages can register by visiting www.SouthDecaturMSCR.eventbrite.com, or by completing a paper registration form prior to the event. Registration is $25 for adults 13 and older, and $20 for kids 12 and under. A family of five gets a discount at $20 per person. Pre-registration is[...]
