SD Giants Softball Team!

  • April 16, 2013 · 6:00 PM

At our End of the Season Celebration meetup, we thought it could be really fun to form a team and play co-ed softball together, so I looked into it, and this is what it's all about:

  • The team consists of 12-14 players. If we register as a team, it'd be about $50-60 a person.
  • The season is 9 games. We'd play for 9 weeks on the same night every week, sometime between the hours of 6pm and 10pm.
  • There is a tournament on the 10th week for the winning teams (which we'd obviously be a part of).
  • There are Happy Hours and drinking involved
  • Here's the website for more info: http://www.govavi.com/softball?PHPSESSID=b450fa0e6f357ec98255108adea628a6#3268

We are in need of a Team Captain! I am unable to organize this team. If YOU! would like to lead us to a championship, leave a comment saying so! The responsibilities of captain are extremely basic: choose which dates we'll sign up for, create and event for our practice, fill out the form, collect money.

Once we have a captain, we'll choose a date for our first practice, where we can collect money and have fun.

    Hey Gigantes Softball players! We had a good practice/throw-around last Saturday. I still only see 13 people in the FB group, so I'm hoping we have enough to field a team week after week. Please join the FB group for updates.
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/149188445247746
    It should be set to where any member can add new members.

    When is the first practice??

    • Craig

      I'm not sure how to find out if fields are open or not. I'm in Mira Mesa and there are a couple of different locations here with fields. We need to get serious about setting a practice though! Not everyone is on the FB group yet, so I guess we'll need to continue to disseminate information here.

    • Henry

      I know some where having problems linking in. Just send me a email to [masked] looks like I can invite you into facebook group. So a few more just need to join and then we can be better organized. Mira Mesa will work for me.

  • Henry

    looks like we have 8 guys now with Eric and Bryan joining. Is that enough? Craig if you have some input let me know. If Kimmy has a female player join then we will have the 7 1/2 females we should be good to go. Just realized Mar 30 is Easter weekend but still probably can get out and practice. How does facebook group work I have an account with them. Just let me know how to set that up.

    I have another friend who would also like to join.

    March 20, 2013

    • Henry

      only if the friend is female.

      March 21, 2013

    • Kimmy

      Nope but if one of the guys drop out or you need another, let me know

    OK the SAN DIEGO GIANTS are signed up and paid. Tuesday nights at Old town starting April 16th. It looks like we got the Orange Tshirts (i put in for 13) we have 6 guys (Me, JP, Craig, Travis, Ian, Matt Roehl) 6 1/2 females (Krista, Allison, Kelly, Kimmy, Holly, Missy) and Veronica (to sub in). I need full names, phone #s, email address and Tshirt size request to me. I think I have emailed most everybody in this group but can email me at [masked] we can work out payments at a future practice I am guessing $60 bucks. If there is still people wanting to play let me I was hoping to get to 15 just in case. I know I can add you to the roster before season starts but these original 13 have 1st dibs to all. Lets try and have a practice maybe morning of Saturday march 30th? also if there is a way to start a google group or something so our emails are not sent out to all the members please enlighten me because I am computer UN-savvy.

      Still room to join?

    Vavi gives out team shirts right? We need to make sure we are the orange team! If we don't have a choice through vavi, I can get shirts made up for about 10 bucks a piece if we're interested.

    March 18, 2013

    • Henry

      looks like we got the orange shirts but we can talk about getting some made that is cool with me.

  • Henry

    Thanks for the feedback Craig. I have never played in a league like this. I figure we will need more females as the minimum requirement thing. as of March 14 we have 5 guys with Ian on board and 5 females with Kimmy and Veronica joining. If we can get up to 12 by tonight I can sign up for the league before I leave for Arizona.

    March 14, 2013

    • Craig

      I don't know the rules of this league but the other co-ed I played in utilized four outfielders and a rover (total of 11 on the field) They also allowed an extra-hitter (EH) for a total of 12 people playing. Subs were allowed at any time, but the minimum # of girls had to stay the same. The batting order was boy-girl-boy-girl also, so you wouldn't necessarily be batting behind the same person each time.

      March 14, 2013

    • Henry

      Craig: Thanks for the info. I agree Veronica dump those punks and join the SAN DIEGO GIANTS.

      2 · March 19, 2013

  • Holly

    I would love to play and if you still need a girl...count me in. I've been playing since I was a little girl and can't wait to play this spring/summer!

    1 · March 14, 2013

  • Craig

    We can definitely use more bodies! The minimum of 9 is not advisable, especially with the exact number of women for the minimum. One girl can't make it one week... we forfeit! I'm assuming the league allows 11 fielders and potentially an EH? 12 playing, and up to 15 or 16 on the roster doesn't seem like a bad idea at all. I'm sure some of us will be out of town here and there...

    March 13, 2013

  • Kimmy

    Have you guys looked into getting a sponsor, perhaps Bridges? If you guys still need a girl and don't mind that I suck...I would be available as long as it is Tuesday evenings.

    1 · March 13, 2013

  • Veronica A.

    Do you still need a girl? I currently play in the Tuesday night Vavi league in Old Town but we're switching to Thursday's so I'll be available Tuesdays.

    1 · March 13, 2013

  • Henry

    As of now March 12 we have 4 guys (me, JP, Craig, Travis) and 3 females (Krista, Allison, and Kelly) as soon as we get to the 9 minimum with 4 females I will pay and reserve the team. it may mean that it will be more than $50 but i figure we will get to 12-15?

    March 12, 2013

  • Allison

    Sooo...road trip to Jon and Christy's once the season starts, yes? :)
    Travis and I are in!

    March 11, 2013

  • Christy

    Jon and I will have to sit this one out =( We're actually living in the Bay Area right now until July. We're working 3 blocks away from AT&T Park!

    March 11, 2013

  • Kelly

    Count me in!

    March 11, 2013

  • Craig

    I'm still in... are we going to have enough people to make it happen?

    March 11, 2013

  • Leslie

    I really wish I could play, but my work schedule just doesn't allow for it during the week. Best of luck SD Giants!

    March 10, 2013

  • Henry

    Looks like the season starts April 16th for nine weeks on Tuesdays in Old Town. If there is interest I can sign into the league it is $750 and people just pay me back. I figure if we get 15 players on the roster it will be $50. we can arrange to see how many games people can make. if more want to play can just sub in and buy 1st pitcher. There are 9 players a game 4 female so obviously need females to sign up. Will take any input- co-captains. Hey Jon thanks for adding me an organizer was this your subtle way of getting my butt to organize the softball team.

    March 10, 2013

  • Krista G.

    I would love to play co-ed softball. I have coached before...and I would be willing to do it again, but a co-captain would make life much easier! There are several leagues in the county and a central location may be the best?

    January 29, 2013

  • Henry

    Please Holly organize this. I will end up choosing the league right next to my house. the old town league was full.

    January 28, 2013

  • Christy

    Hey everyone! We haven't signed up for softball, so we won't be playing Tuesday the 29th. However, there are a bunch of leagues with a bunch of different start dates, so we could still play if someone's able to get the organizing together. If someone would like to be our Team Captain, we can definitely make this happen. Here's all the Vavi info:

    January 28, 2013

  • Holly

    Henry and Christy: I would be happy to help with organizing the team too. Maybe we can do a "practice" this week for those interested in joining the team and knock the dust off our gloves and collect money for registration then?

    January 19, 2013

    • Christy

      Sounds good, Holly! You can Schedule a New Event for any evening this week, and we'll see who can come out!

      January 20, 2013

    • Kelly

      Hi! Let me know if you guys need help with setting up a team. Maybe we can get a Paypal account set up for the registration money.

      January 23, 2013

  • Henry

    Christy: I just emailed Jon you know I will take care of it if nobody steps up. I will be at Woodstocks in PB for Sundays game if you want to come by or just contact me I didn't realize the season starts soon. Woodstocks will have the sound on, happy hour all day and 10% off if you are wearing 49ers gear. Let's go NINERS!

    January 19, 2013

  • Christy

    Just in case people didn't see my email, at the moment *This Team Needs an Organizer*! I have gotten extremely busy this month and am unable to organize the team. If someone is able to collect money and sign us up, the team can happen. Thanks!

    Do you have enough players???

    I haven't played in very long time. It's this team only for intermediate and advance players?

    I always wanted to join a softball team since moving to sd

    November 9, 2012

  • Craig

    I'm fairly busy until March, but I think this is a fantastic idea. I may be able to start in Feb. but if there are enough people, probably March would be best for my schedule. I really miss playing softball, thanks for posting this!

    November 8, 2012

  • Allison

    I'm down for Tues nights in Old Town and think signing up as a team is a better deal than individual!

    November 8, 2012

  • Kelly

    Sounds fun!

    November 8, 2012

  • Drew B. W.

    Count me in!!! I may be able to get another player or two!
