They are playing tomorrow too.

Here's how the softball game got started way back in the spring of 2010 through the efforts of one Roosevelt Island resident and the very first game. Great job Jason!

The Roosevelt Island Softball players may not get the cheers or money that Derek Jeter gets,

but they sure look like they are having fun.

Thanks Rick! We couldn't have gotten it started without you. We've grown so much that we might even start a second weekly game next year.

Our Season Finale is tomorrow (looks like we'll get temperatures int the low 50's) but I'm already looking forward to the Spring.
