We had an exciting 2019 season and really looked forward to 2020 but, sadly, it was not to be because of the coronavirus. It was hard to see the summer season cancelled and now we are wondering about any softball this fall. Pastor Hout says we should get a bunch of people together and have a game with just St. Jacob folks? If we play against ourselves, the good news is that one way or another we will come away with a win!!! We were hoping for a new Monday night league in 2020 with just churches involved (Germantown Methodist wants to join us). Our 2019 schedule and results are posted below. All our games were at Rice Field diamond number 1 on Wednesday evenings. As we get ready for our 200th anniversary wouldn’t it be great to play some Vintage Baseball...with an old time giant ball and wooden bats and no gloves?
