About Middletown Men's Softball

 

About us: This slow-pitch, NSA league has been a mainstay of the Middletown, CT area for a number of years. We play our games at the fields behind Moody School. 

We are always looking for new teams, captains, players and umpires. 

The  Summer League plays from late April to mid-August in Middletown, CT, and is open to men ages 18 and over. We have A, B, C & D divisions for all competition levels, from highly competitive to recreational. 

The Men's fall league starts the end of August and goes through mid-October.  For more information, email middletownscores@yahoo.com
