We are a league of extraordinary gentlemen, backed by the greatest of great family and friends. When we come out to play we must understand that there are people out there watching our game, our skills and the way we run our league, as well as, you guys play in our league. When people talk about how good, fun, exciting and competitive a league is. I would like our name, REDNMF SOFTBALL LEAGUE, to be one of the top leagues out everyone's mouths. When you hear about our league you want to hear nothing but great things. We have established ourselves to be a league worth watching out for. Now we need to step up our game and let everyone see for themselves how good, organized, well structured, different with many many unique and eventfull things that go on with our league. We are also involved with many other things outside the softball world. Examples: Charity events, Tournaments, Supporting our Sponsors, parties, trips, vacations, sporting supplies, etc.... We are not just a softball league but a family league with a great supporting staff and teams willing to step up for the cause. It starts with you to make that initial step forward to achieve great expectations. We want you, no we need you to know, its all about TEAMWORK and having fun!!!!!
