The schedule and rules are up and posted under handouts.
This week's matchups (April 29th) are the following:
Orange (home) vs. Black High School (back field)
Safety Yellow (home) vs. Red at the Middle School
Blue (home) vs. Green High School (middle field)
Games are 10 a.m. We're still looking for a couple of umps. Send them our way if you know anybody interested
Season six will begin on April 29th. We'll run through through the end of June. You'll be receiving emails soon about signups. If you have friends that are interested in participating, please be sure to have them sign our waiting list. We'll initially sign-up existing players and then add players as needed. We depleted the waiting list a lot last year, so there's a good chance people wanting to play this year will be able to do so.

We will begin our season this Sunday. The schedule and rules are posted on the website (under handouts). Due to somebody ripping up the back field of the high school with a dirt bike, we've been asked to stay off that field for a few more weeks. The three fields we will be using to start the season are the baseball field, the middle field at the high school and the field behind the middle school. As soon as we get clearance from the town, we'll begin using the back field at the high school and stop using the baseball field.
This week's games are the following:
Safety Yellow (Kenny) hosts Team Blue (Chilcott) at baseball field (located at Pembroke High School.
Green (Hill) hosts Orange (York) at Middle School (located at Pembroke Middle School on Route 27)
Red (Quatrale) hosts Black Ice (Phillips) at Middle Field. (located beyond the baseball field at Pembroke H.S.)
All games begin at 10 a.m.
Last week, all six coaches and a couple of longtime female players met to hammer out some rules and things that had come up on the season-ending survey from last year. A few changes were made. The full list is on the website under "handouts" but a few highlights:
Since our league is 2/3rds men, we'll be using a guy-guy-girl batting order all the way through the lineup.
We'll be doing playoffs again this year and all teams will make the playoffs. Details of how that will work are on the website
No outside bats will be allowed. Only bats purchased by the league are allowed, No exceptions!
Thanks and looking forward beginning the year.
Season four signups are complete. We've added a handful of new people but, for the most part everybody is back from last year. If you are interested in signing up as either a sub or be added to the waiting list at the link below. Each year we have a handful of people that get injured or end up having schedule conflicts and we just go to waiting list when we need extra people.
Congrats to Safety Yellow for having the best record and winning this year's championship. We were unfortunately rained out the last two weeks of the season which was a lousy way to end the year. If you haven't signed up for pickup games already, be sure to click on the link on the right-hand side.
June 10th, 2015:
This Sunday is the Pan-Mass Bike Ride for Kids and it's taking place at the high school. As part of the safety plan that the organizers and police decided on, there will be some cars parking on the baseball field. We are moving the game between the Black Ice and Blue Team to the field at North Pembroke Elementary School. Patrick was able to get that field reserved. That game will take place at 10:30 and, for those not familiar with the school, the field is on the left-hand side of the school. The address there is 72 Pilgrim Road.

The link below has the rules and regulations for 2015. Not much has changed except that we are allowing sliding again and we're also asking all teams to use the bats that we purchased. Each team has three bats of varying weights. When we did the survey last year, people wanted bats that were consistent league-wide. This was the best solution we could come up with. If things work out with them, we'll add additional bats next season.
Thanks and looking forward to a great season.
Welcome to Season Three
Welcome to season three of Pembroke Co-Ed Softball. The season kicks off on Sunday, May 3rd and will run through Sunday, June 28th. We had 88 players last season and remarkably 82 of them have returned. We've plugged in a few additional players as well. We'll again have six teams playing on the three fields and the games will begin at 10:30 a.m. Generally there's a group on one of the fields about an hour early doing some batting practice and fielding. All are welcome to take part in that. There will be sliding again this year. We'd done away with it last year but the consensus from players last year was they wanted it back. There will be no hard sliding though.
We purchased some very good quality bats for each team. Some players felt there was some difference in the caliber of bat on each team, so this should level the playing field.
If you are on Facebook, please "like" our page at www.facebook.com/pembrokesoftball. There is a link on here for schedule and standings.
Thanks and we'll see you out there soon,

The link on the link has the schedule for each week. You can either click on which team you are on or just look at the league-wide schedule. It also lists which field you are playing on. Generally, Matt York is up there an hour early doing some batting practice and fielding on whatever field he's playing on that week. All are welcome to join.
Looking forward to a great season!
The Black Ice won the softball championship for the second year in row after reeling off eight straight wins. They finished the season 8-1.
Thanks to everybody that made Opening Day a success. Big wins for Vegas Gold, Orange Juice and Chilly Blue. On to game two next week.
Baseball Field: Black Ice (Home) vs. Vegas Gold (Away)

Hello, we received a slew of new registrations today and we are temporarily suspending online registration. However, we will likely be add a few more players (especially females). If you spoke with one of the managers or organizers previously about signing up, speak with them or shoot us an email at email@example.com. In addition, last year we had a number of people get hurt because we're old and old people get hurt playing a kids game sometimes. If you'd like to add your name to the waiting list or substitute list, you can click on the form in the upper right hand box and do so. If we have enough people express interest, we'll discuss the possibility of adding teams but logistically, it'd be tricky to do so. However, we had injuries, other commitments cause a number of substitutes to be sure we had enough players and that will likely be the case again this year. If you'd like to add your team, please fill out the form on the upper right-hand side.
Thanks for your enthusiasm and understanding.

You'll see the link on the right-hand side to register. You can pay by credit card, debit card or PayPal. Players that sign up will be able to do so on a first come/first serve basis, so please be sure to sign up as soon as possible. If you are a new player and have a team you'd like to be a part of, you can type that in under the notes section on the registration form. We can't guarantee that we'll be able to fulfill all requests. Some teams from last year are back almost completely and others are missing players, so we'll do the best that we can.
- Our intention is to keep six teams like we did last year. The season will run from May 4th thru June 29th.
- The games will be played on Sunday mornings again but we'll have a slightly earlier start time (probably 10:30).
