About the League:
In addition to the traditional Saturday off for Independence Day, the league will have multiple “Free Saturdays” during the season, which will be Saturdays with no games in order to accommodate players who would like to have an open Saturday here or there for personal reasons. To maintain the ten-game regular season while having “Free Saturdays”, several game days will feature double-headers.
Moody Softball is a co-ed 12″ softball league that plays games from June through August, with playoff games in the last two weekends of August. Games, which are played Saturday mornings, are primarily social and secondarily competitive.
Games are played at Clarendon Park on the northeast side of Chicago.
As a player, you are entitled to:
- fellowship with fellow brothers and sisters in Christ
- minimum 10 regular season games
- minimum 1 playoff game
- team t-shirt with custom uniform number
- stats tracked
Teams will be formed with a hybrid draft. Managers will be able to choose four other players to make up their initial 5-man roster. All other players will be then picked via draft by the managers.
If you are part of another church that is playing in the Moody Softball League, you will be placed with your church. If your church has 2 teams, then your church teams will also be formed by hybrid draft.
