So I guess technically we don’t play softball. We play Mushball.
I found this out when I tried to reserve a field for Saturday the 26th at 2:00pm at
Peninsula Park Overlook Park. Softball isn’t allowed there because the field is pretty small. But Mushball is allowed. What is Mushball? Well… I think it’s softball.
Sixteen-inch softball, also sometimes referred to as “mushball” or “super-slow pitch”, is a direct descendant of Hancock’s original game. Mushball is played extensively in Chicago, where devotees such as the late Mike Royko consider it the “real” game, and New Orleans. In New Orleans, sixteen-inch softball is called “Cabbage Ball” and is a popular team sport.
So anyway, we’re playing on Saturday! 2pm at Peninsula Park. There is a Facebook Event and everything.
