Women's Baseball League Set for First Pitch

The players have been drafted, the gloves are broken in and the hot dogs are on the grill. The Chicago Women’s Baseball League is set to kick off their inaugural season with a double header this Sunday, 10:30 a.m., at Bedford Park, 6700 S. 78th St. in Bedford Park, Ill.

Opening ceremonies will begin at 10:30 a.m., followed by the Riveters vs. the Skyline at 11 a.m. The second game will feature the Comets taking on the Turtle Rocks at 2 p.m. The league is sponsored by the Chicago Gems Women's Baseball Club.

In between the games, the CWBL will host a free barbeque for fans in attendance. More info is available on this PDF.

If all of that sounds exciting to you, stop kicking yourself for trying out for any of the teams. CWBL officials say it’s not too late to participate. Teams are still looking for players to round out their rosters, so if you’re interested, drop them a line at Practices are held every Saturday (weather permitting) at Winnemac Park, Foster and Damen Aves.
