Picayune’s Parks and Recreation Department is starting a men’s softball league at Friendship Park.
The league will begin Tuesday, June 21 at Friendship Park located on South Haugh Road. Nine teams have registered so far, but registration is still open for new teams.
Team registration costs $220 and will go toward park maintenance and the winner’s trophy. On average, there are 12 players per team, but there is no minimum requirement, said Trevor Adam, director of the Picayune Parks and Recreation Department.
Each team will play two games per night. The first game will start at 6 p.m. and the second will start at 9p.m., said Adam. Players are asked to contribute $1 per game to pay the umpire.
