American Softball ended its season with a final game on Saturday, August 24 at Kissena Corridor Park in Flushing.
American Softball is devoted to offering handicapped and challenged adults with the opportunity to enjoy the game of softball.
In the final game players hit the ball, ran the bases and enjoyed the camaraderie of the sport. After the game, they enjoyed refreshments and then players received trophies.
“Our players are truly special and we are proud to give them all this opportunity to play the great American sport of softball,” said Randy Novick, who founded the league. “We look forward to providing a fun and rewarding experience for our players in the future.”
This year the league grew to 46 players and Novick plans for it to increase more in upcoming seasons.
“We hope to further expand membership in the league next year and in the future open additional locations in New York City and around the country,” he said.
