Softball was invented as an indoor recreation in Chicago in 1887 by George Hancock, a newspaper reporter.  It was also called Kitten Ball and Pumpkin ball when softball was reinvented as an outdoor game.  "Softball" didn't get it's name until 1926!   Softball became an Olympic sport in 1996 and every game was SOLD OUT; however 2008 was the last time softball appeared in the Olympics.  

Great news - Softball will return this year, 2020 in Tokyo Olympic games!!


If you would like to use a field at Alexander Park prior to the season be sure to reserve your time with Paul McGinty.  If you do not reserve your time/field and someone else does you will not be allowed to use the field.  Any teams not playing out of MYA Softball will be required to pay a field reservation fee to MYA Softball.
