Be a part of a Leo Baeck Temple tradition! Spend Sunday mornings playing in the city-wide modified fast-pitch Synagogue Softball League. Last year, 34 teams from twenty-one temples participated in four divisions (A, B1, B2, and C). LBT teams played in the middle divisions, B1 and B2.
All games are played on Sundays at 9:00am, 11:00am or 1:00pm beginning in January and ending in mid-June. Both teams conduct casual practices on Sundays beginning the end of November. The seven-inning games are competitive (but not cut-throat). Sliding is allowed (and required on close plays at home and in certain double-play situations). Bunting and stealing are not allowed. The minimum age is 20; no maximum age limit exists.
Our own Rabbi Chasen is a member of both teams (thanks to a special league dispensation) and has continued to support both teams with both his fielding and batting. Many of the players have enjoyed playing on the teams since LBT joined the league in 2001. Family members often join players at the games, so the general atmosphere is fun and friendly.
If you are interested in playing or learning more about the league, please contact Barry Snyder for additional details.
