Anyone here play softball?

Looking to play some softball in the evenings/weekends in the dfw metroplex. Last league I showed up to play in the guys were f-in semi-pro (looking for a little more recreational players, not the win or die groups). If anyone knows of any pick-up games or rec leagues let me know or post up.

How bad are you, and what position(s) do you play? We've got a team in Denton but we've got a bunch of assholes that half ass it, aren't worth a shit, and/or don't show up to games. We'd like to find about 6-7 guys that are willing to put forth the effort, don't totally suck, and will show up to games.

Edit: Don't get me wrong, we're not die-hard about it, but we play to win and we take it as seriously as anything else we invest precious hours of our free time in.

You really want to drive up to Denton for a 55 minute men's (no women) slowpitch softball game?

Hey Tony, let me come play in one of your games while I am here! I can play any where...except catcher and pitcher. Prefer not to play 1st either. I was a SS in up thru HS. I dont totally suck and I can hit pretty well.

Our next game isn't until Monday. Not sure on the time yet.

We've been rained out the last two weeks.

I don't suck, or suck that bad (6'1" 240lb and dropping weight daily getting into shape) played high school baseball and in a mens softball league from '99-'05. I have just been out of it for 6 years and lost a step, but I bust my ass on the field- just not at the semi-pro level.

Mainly C ball. I started playing 3 nights a week last year for the first time in a while but cut back a little this year because of my baby son.
We have a Lockout Supplements team on Tuesday nights in Mckinney.

My buddy Josh Chavez if you know him stacks the tourny teams and i play when i can. I sponsor some of them as well.

Usually play on Friday in Euless, softball world. It is fun but I need to be moved to a more competitive league. D league isn't fun anymore. Half the guys think they are God's gift to the sport and are terrible and the other half are halfway decent but just aren't at the level that I would like to be playing at. I play to win and most the guys out there go out and are drunk by the time the 4th inning is over. Not to mention the guys out there with 1000's of dollars worth of shaved bats, that kind of stuff just gets to me.

What? You don't like the shaved Miken Ultras that are painted? LOL. I don't think there is a whole lot of bats out there that don't have some kind of "work" done.

I think it is funny when people go to those lengths to hit HR's and still cant. I have hit quite a few with my Miken Freak 98' no rolling or shaving here just good ole' fashioned power.

That link isn't your average league ball. Most C league teams are about as good as an E tourney team, and are usually a lot of guys that play tourney ball out for kicks and swings. E league is your entry level, D is better, C is the top offered most places. As you get higher, you are allowed more HRs, the teams get better top to bottom, errors go away.

Lonestarsoftball.com or softballfans.com/forums-> Free Agent Forum. I think Euless and some of the other parks depts have message boards on their sites, but I'm not sure.

These guys can hit it where ever they want. For 250 leagues a lot of us use shitty aluminum bats.
