Co-ed, slow-pitch softball in Central Park!
Softball season is here! We play two games every Sunday.
NOTE: Appalachian Mountain Club membership is required for people who want to join our Meetup group. For info on the local Appalachian Mountain Club chapter, see this link: amc-ny.org. AMC membership fees are $40 for individuals, $60 for families, and only $25 for people under age 30 or seniors aged 70+.
Don’t worry if you feel rusty, or if you have never played before. We encourage a fun, not overly competitive game, where everyone can participate. We even supply the equipment (bats, balls, bases - please bring your own glove).
This is a very friendly game that has become a Central Park fixture. We're now into our third decade, and we've got a loyal group of folks. The game is organized by members of the Appalachian Mountain Club (the nation’s oldest outdoor recreation and conservation organization).
We play every Sunday from late April through early Autumn (and beyond). We meet at 10:30 AM. The first game starts at 11. Then we take a short break and play our second game, finishing by 3. The fee is $5, payable in cash on game day.
Adults of all ages and experience levels play with us. Join us for lunch after the games!
If the forecast temperature for mid-day is 50 degrees or higher, then we will play!
In case of poor weather and field conditions: The ball fields could be closed. Please call the park hotline on game days to confirm field openings: 212-628-1036, extension 331 (for North Meadow dates), 332 (for Heckscher Fields dates), or 330 (for Great Lawn dates).
See you on the field!
