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.
