Russellville adds adult co-ed softball

Competitive fun is not only for children now, as Russellville Parks and Recreation is adding a new co-ed softball league for the spring.

Russellville Parks and Recreation Department director Donnie Flanagan said Russellville hosted two co-ed softball tournaments earlier this year with other teams that inspired a lot of interest in Russellville creating its own league.

“I think it’ll be fun to give ladies a chance to get out and do something with their husbands or boyfriends,” Flanagan said.

The cost is $350 per team, with the winner of the league receiving a free entry fee next season and the end-of-the-year tournament winner receiving the entry fee back.

Last day to register is March 20.

The league will consist of slow-pitch softball games Tuesday and Thursday nights at Tom Strange Field. Games will begin March 24, and Flanagan said the season will continue about six weeks. Games will most likely begin around 5:30 p.m., with another game beginning at 7:30 p.m.

He said it has been years since Russellville has offered co-ed softball, so he is excited to see it opening back up and see where the league goes. If there is enough interest, Parks and Recreation could even look into expanding to separate men’s and women’s leagues.

Flanagan said the league has a lot of potential, and he is already in contact with directors from other areas about potentially hosting more co-ed softball tournaments in Russellville.

“We are really excited about it,” Flanagan said. “It is going to be fun.”
