Windsor Park Adult Recreational Softball's Website
We are a group of good-natured residents originally from Windsor Park, Bayside, New York, who share a devotion to the game of softball. Since 1997, we get together on Sunday mornings between mid April and late November, weather permitting, to play recreational softball at Alley Pond Park. Initially we started playing in nearby Cunningham Park. Our games are casual, stress free events, with no league or team commitment required. The emphasis is on fun, not competition. Thank you for visiting, please return soon and remember to bookmark us for future easy reference. We would appreciate knowing that you were here, please sign our guest book before leaving.

In game one of Sunday’s twin bill the Mozzarella Sticks played flawless ball to defeat the Artichokes easily 12-4. Big Joe made the play of the game with a ridiculous catch on a screaming line drive off John’s bat that nearly took his head off. Quick reflexes Joe!
Game two was Eric’s show. He was lights out and held the hot-hitting Sticks at bay with an assortment of nasty pitches. He had pinpoint control of a lively rising fastball and spotted a nasty 11-5 knuckle-curve to strike out some baffled hitters. Not since Jeff’s heydays of greatness we have witnessed such an impressive pitching performance. Hey Jeff, what’s up! The Artichokes won 9-2.
In attendance were Nick, John, Kenny, Arun, Eric, Artie, Paul, Carl, Edie, Kumar, Dave, Frankie, Xavier, Pedro, Mike W, Glenn, Big Joe and the writer.
See you guys next week!
Here’s last week’s recap…

Game Summary by Kenny Michaels
Beautiful morning, but only 12 players. Original response was for 16. If you want this game to continue we need players who want to play and show up on a regular basis. It requires an effort to get this game going every week. Maurice who usually carries the load was not feeling well so other players helped get the game going.
The field was wet so kudos to Mike and Paul and Kumar for locating and carrying compound to make field playable. And to Big Joe for lugging the beer and others who brought bases and balls.
We decided to play with four man teams.
Big Joe-Glenn-Frank- Mike R and Mauricio who arrived late.
Final score 12-11-3.
Game highlights: Mike playing first base with one arm... Paul finding his hitting groove... Frank finding his lefty hitting groove... Glenn making some excellent fielding plays. Mike the Wolf led Kenny's team to victory with a bases loaded double and then a double in the bottom of the last inning to be in position to score winning run.
A fun game for all who attended.
