As the warmer weather melts away the snow, Quesnel’s Mixed Softball League is hard at work, getting the fields ready for another action-packed season.
It’s a league made for softball fanatics looking to participate in a bit of fun-filled competition with league games and tournaments throughout the spring and summer months.
The league allows softball players as young as 16 with parental consent, but it is primarily an adult league.
“We are open to anyone interested in playing,” league president Jason Williams explained.
“Or anybody with a team that would like to play.”
Teams are comprised of anywhere from 15 to 18 players, with seven men
and three women out
on the field at any given time.
In past years the league has divided their season into two leagues, a spring and a summer league, but this year brings a change.
The previously separated leagues are being combined for one extended season with a one-time fee for the entire year.
“We will try and work schedules out so that everyone has an opportunity to play more,” Williams said.
Last year the fields saw 13 teams during the spring months and seven teams during the summer.
There is the hope to have up to 17 teams out on the fields this season.
Stop by the Legion April 11, 3 p.m. to register for Quesnel’s Mixed Softball League.
The season will be in full swing in May, starting with a Icebreaker tournament, May 1 – 3.
After the Icebreaker the regular season begins, May 4. Every Monday to Friday there is the chance for some softball action.
