RACINE – Calling all softball-loving adults ages 50 and older! The City of Racine Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services (PRCS) is inviting any adults in the 50-plus range to come on out and play in a recreational softball program. The program will be Wednesday mornings at Island Park, 1700 Liberty St., Racine.

Both men and women are welcome to come and play, regardless of skill level, in a weekly recreational softball game. The program begins Wednesday, May 11, 2022. Games are from 9 a.m. through 11 a.m. with batting practice starting at 8:30 a.m. Teams will be picked each week from those who attend.

This is an informal, recreational game series, meant to focus on fun, fitness, as well as camaraderie. As such, to reduce the risk of injury, games will be played with modified rules.

There is no registration required to play, and it’s completely free to participants. Bats and balls will be provided, however, players will need to bring their own personal equipment (mitts/gloves, cleats, batting gloves). For more information, please get in touch with Jeanne Brenner at the Tyler-Domer Community Center, by calling 262-636-9416.
