For many of us, the summer doesn't start until the first pitch is fired from the mound at M Street Park. Well, it's almost that time here as the M Street league is making preparations for it's May 12th season opener. This will mark the 44th year of organized softball at the field located on the corner of M and East Third Streets in South Boston. Games are played nightly (Monday through Friday) with start times slated for 6:30 and 8:15pm.
As of this writing, the league has commitments from the five-time champion Shennanigans squad, along with the Playwright, Cranberry Cafe, Telegraph Hill, The Warehouse, The Islanders, Lincoln Tavern, Harp & Bard, and Southside Tavern. New team entry possibilities come from Adam Beers, Eric Archambault, and Tyler Carlin. There are still a few team openings available but the window is closing as the start of the season is less than four weeks away. If you have a team that you want to enter into the M Street league then contact Mark Senna (email@example.com) for further details.
Also, we have several individuals who have signed up through the "Free Agent" form available on the web site. The league will contact these players today (4/23) to provide more information and outline some options on joining the league. Hopefully, we can find a home for all of these players and anyone else that wants to participate.
Lastly, it looks like we are going to split the league into two divisions with separate playoffs in each. This will be a first for the league but we feel it is necessary for the survival of the league. Please check back here as more information will follow in the coming weeks. Until then, start stretching those arms boys!
