Yay...Opening Day for 2016, our eighth season(!), is Thursday June 2. Same place, same time. Last year we enjoyed big turnouts, terrific games and many new faces that have become friends.
The Foulies originated years ago as a league softball team - known then as the Foul Balls, but that's another story. After making the playoffs, which was a minor miracle (we checked to see if Hell had frozen over) and wringing our hands about winning, we realized there was just too much pressure that interfered with more important things like socializing, beer drinking and just having a good time in the sunshine. Thus we decided to play weekly pick-up games with anybody welcome, no matter what their skill level. We have absolute beginners who have never played, up to more serious and skilled players. This creates a great mix and some surprisingly competitive games with good play. But the emphasis is truly on fun, meeting new people and enjoying summer/fall evenings.
We supply three of the four B's: Bats, Balls and Bases. Members supply the fourth B. If you need a glove, we have spares. And someone will happily loan you a glove when their side is up to bat.
We play evening games until late September, or whenever the weather and waning light chase us into hibernation. Post-game food/drinks at a local pub.
$5 per game donation (or $40 for the season) to help cover field costs, insurance, equipment, Meetup page fees etc.
