You Are Cordially Invited to SOFTBALL IN THE CITY

Permit application process has been started, with any luck we’ll be frolicking in the North Meadow of Central Park some sunny Saturday in July or August.* Attendance will be taken! Those not in attendance will be talked smack of!

Further details will be posted as they become available, or as I remember them. If you’re in contact with primates (or other beings) who don’t regularly visit the site, make sure to let ‘em know! They don’t need to be good, there are already enough of you who make me look bad.

RSVP before game time, whenever that turns out to be. Or just show up.


*Okay, I requested 11 - 2 on July 20, we’ll see what happens
**Per post #42 below, we’re now aiming for Saturday, August 10, 11 - 2. I’ll try to keep the info up here up to date with the latest status. -vi

ESPN: Penny Marshall, director of ‘A League of Their Own,’ dies at 75

“A League of Their Own” chronicled the Rockford Peaches and the launch of the AAGPBL during World War II. The cast included Geena Davis, Tom Hanks, Madonna, Lori Petty and Rosie O’Donnell, and the film grossed $107.5 million domestically.

Hanks’ reprimand from the movie—“There’s no crying in baseball!’’—remains quoted on baseball diamonds everywhere.

For my money she directed either the best or second best baseball movie of all time.  And I am positive that people have yelled “there’s no crying in baseball!” at their fellow Primates since the NY softball game started.
