Week 4 Update: As of 9/29 week 3 games are on as scheduled at 5pm!
Put me in, Coach!! Not all is lost for 2020, as we are excited to officially announce that Fall Twilight League is a go! For those of you that live in the Chicagoland area, we will be hosting a Fall Softball league once a week to determine who will be the 2020 TLL Champs. Seniors, the Steve Ehrlich Trophy WILL be on the line. This is official!
The Benjamin Softball Team 2-1
Team Duffy 2-1
Team Meyers 1-2
Team Spector. 1-2
Team Shefren 3-0
Tyler’s Force Fielders 2-1
The Morris Monsters 1-2
Team Malkin 0-3
We will play regular season games in September and October, and have the official TLL playoffs at the end of October. Each team will be guaranteed (to the best of our ability) 6 regular season games before playoffs. But, depending on numbers and teams, we might be able to get in 2 games some weeks.
Dates: Games will start Wednesday September 9th and will be played every Wednesday night.
Times: Games will be played from 5-7pm
Location: Woodland Park in Deerfield, IL (1425 Wilmot Rd. Deerfield IL, 60015)
Cost: Only $25/person for the season! This will help us get umpires and coaches if needed and buy any equipment. If we don’t use it, we’ll throw it in the camper’s town day funds for 2021.
Other Important Info:
Camp staff will umpire the games and “general manage” the teams, but campers will be named captains and, just like camp, will be in charge of their teams.
Our goal here is to provide our campers with some sort of experience that we would have had together in 2020. As such, we are limiting participation to ONLY campers who were enrolled for 2020 or who were planning to enroll.
Camp will provide everything the boys for the league. They just need to bring themselves, a baseball glove (if playing 12″) and cleats if you got ’em!
We will be closely following and enforcing Deerfield’s COVID related rules and best practices. Masks will be worn by players, GMs and umpires, we will provide sanitizer at each game as well as wipe down bats and balls between use.
