Softball Practice and Team Sign up in New Lenox - We need women players!

Come join me for some softball practice!  If you're a woman, we need you! WE only have 3 women registered for a co-ed league.  Please come play with us and register to be on the team. 

This is a 12" co-ed softball team (see my other meetup), and I'd like to continue throwing the ball around, get some hitting practice, and maybe scrimmage if there's enough people.  All skill levels are welcome, but you'll need a mitt.  I'll supply the 12" softballs and bases.

Where to go

• We will be at Tyler-Bentley School in New Lenox.  This school is on Illinois Highway.  If you're coming from the north, take Cedar Rd south to Illinois Highway and turn left.  Go about 1/2 mile and you'll see the school on the left hand side of the road.  Park in the back parking lots near field B13.

• In case field B13 is in use, we'll be at an adjoining field, look for us.

What to bring

• $75 registration fee (required if you want to be a regular player)

• A softball mitt (required)

• 12" softballs (optional)

• Bat (recommended)

• Water (recommended - there's no fountain)

How to find me

• Look for me near B13 or on an adjoining field.  Call me at[masked] if you get lost.

    Had a great time at softball practice this week. We warmed up catching and hitting while waiting for everyone to arrive. We had enough people for a full fledged game and had lots of fun. It was nice to nice everyone enjoying themselves and someone even commented that it was the best time they'd had in a long while. I had several more people register to be on the team including two more women. Only one more woman regular and we're set! See you next week.

      Leanne, we need 3 more women regulars so the spots will go first come first served. I'll let you know if there's any spots after tomorrow's practice. Keep in mind you're always welcome to practice with us even if all the spots fill in.

    Just a note about your directions, for those who have never been to New Lenox. If you are coming from a town east of here, It might be quicker and easier to take Route 30 due west to Spencer Road-South. the four-way stop is Joliet Hwy and Southbound Spencer. Continue south about a 1/4 of a mile, turn Right (west) by the junk yard, its on your right, You can only turn right there. Illinois Hwy is not the same as JOLIET hwy. Also, Illinois Hwy is also called Spencer Rd (I know, weird) but it is an East-West Road as opposed to N-S Spencer Rd.
    For those going south on Cedar from Route 30, as soon as you turn south onto Cedar Rd, you will come to a weird fork in the road which is Haven Ave, jog left, then turn right again back onto south bound Cedar.
    I know, its weird, but it does seem to confuse folks.
    Also, Southbound traffic has the right of way but some people don't obey that so be careful at that corner.
    See you guys there.

    So I'd like to come and play ... This would be my first event. Can I come to practice and if it's a good fit then register? Don't know if I want to commit or not...

      We do need some women regulars to sign up. I think once you see how much fun it is you'll want to sign up.

      Also depends on the drive. I live pretty far :-(
