Barristers Ball
Play Softball in the Lawyers’ League—It’s really a lot of fun
The headline pretty much says it all. Lawyers’ League softball is just plain fun. You get out of the office on a Saturday morning and enjoy the beautiful outdoors. It’s co-ed. There are no umpires, so balls and strikes are not called and it’s inexpensive. You don’t even have to be a lawyer–staff, family, friends, clients, and relative strangers are all welcome. Games are Saturdays at 11 a.m. from June through early August at Cranmer (Sundial) Park. Interested captains should email Jack Tanner or call 303-894-4495.
