This year, as in years past, SAG-AFTRA will be fielding a co-ed softball team as part of the Performing Arts Softball League. Games are played on Mondays at 11 a.m. in Central Park at the Hecksher fields. Tryouts will be held at De Witt Clinton Park, located at 11th Avenue between 52nd and 54th Streets.
Basic softball skills and experience are required, but professional ball players are prohibited per league rules. You will be representing SAG-AFTRA in friendly competition. There is no fee to join.
No need to RSVP; just show up at the tryout time with your current paid-up membership card. Managers from other league teams may be present during tryouts, and if you do not make the SAG-AFTRA team you may have the opportunity to try out for another team later in the afternoon if invited.
Games begin in April and continue into September (if we make the playoffs like we did last summer), but players may join mid-season if spots are open. If you can run, hit and cheer loudly for your teammates, you are welcome to join us and be part of the team.

Thanks and see you out there!
