Softball Practice in New Lenox

I am changing the location to Tyler Bentley fields.  This will be the last chance to sign up for the team.  We have 7 guys and 3 gals signed up, so we need 2 more gals.

I am planning on starting up a softball team for the New Lenox Park District Fall Co-Ed Softball League that plays on Thursdays at 6:30, 7:30, 8:30 or 9:30 pm from August 21st to October 30th. 

We will play at the Lions Den Park 520 S Cedar Rd, New Lenox, IL 60451. 

This is a U.S.S.S.A. league played with a 12 inch ball.  There are 10 defensive players with 4 in the outfield.  It is slow pitch with a 8 to 10 foot arc.  Up to 12 players can be on the offensive roster.

There will be 10 regulars and 2 substitutes so I'll be looking for 12 players. The fee for the regulars will be $75 and will cover the league registration and a really nice team shirt with your name and number on it.  The two substitutes will not need to pay and will be allowed to play at any games they attend.  Everyone will bat and no one will sit for more than one inning.  Cash prizes and tournament championship t-shirts will be awarded by the park district.  Only regulars will share in any cash prizes or t-shirts awarded.  

Practice will start Thursdays from 7/24 to 8/21.  We will most likely practice at Jacob Lowell Park, a couple blocks away from Lions Den fields.  The $75 payment  will be due by the 8/7 practice.

Here's one team name that I like.

    I'd love to be a substitute player. I can't commit to the full season tho.

    May 19, 2014

    • John D

      You're welcome to come out and practice with us when you can and then when the season starts perhaps be a substitute.

  • Mary O

    I will come out for the practice. I'd love to play but don't know if I can run the bases anymore. Do the have pinch runners .. Lol. I can probably be a sub

    1 · May 23, 2014

  • Paul

    I can pitch

    1 · May 20, 2014

  • Kris B.

    I would like to be a regular. However I start a new job June 2nd and I won't know if I'll be able to make the 6:30 games.

    May 19, 2014

    • John D

      Hi Kris, you won't need to make every game, just most of them. There will be substitutes to help out who don't have to pay. We can even play with 9 people if we have to, although we'll get an automatic out for the 10th missing person. The first practice is July 24th, so perhaps by then you'll have your schedule figured out.

      May 19, 2014

    • Kris B.

      Hopefully I will by then. Put me on as a regular! :-)

      1 · May 19, 2014

  • Chris

    I can definitely make every single game. I'm so excited, because I've always wanted to join a league.
