Can you imagine New York City, the home of the Mets and the Yankees, without anywhere to play baseball or softball? It can and it is happening. Right now, as predicted, the Manhattan Parks Permits Office removed and replaced active softball and baseball leagues with other sports without the proper or sufficient notification.
For the past 150 years, baseball and softball are the traditional games of New York City. Today, the elimination of softball impacts tens of thousands of New Yorkers who enjoy a good game after a hard day of work.
Check out the video below of a rectangular field, specially designed for multiple sports, sitting idle while oval fields for softball and baseball leagues are being destroyed. We need and demand a level playing field. Please join us by signing our petition. You can also email at email@example.com or call 914.302.6831. Thank you.
