American Softball, the Howard Beach-based league for challenged and handicapped adults, is kicking off its 2014 season with a exhibition game this Sunday.
Players from the league, which include adults from all over Queens with mental and physical disabilities, will face off against players from the Long Island Bombers, a Nassau County-based league for the blind and visually impaired.
The game will start at 10 a.m. at the Rockville Centre Recreation Center at 111 North Oceanside Road in Rockville Centre, LI.
“We are excited to have the Long Island Bombers join us in this one-of-a-kind event,” said Randy Novick, founder and CEO of American Softball. “Both teams are composed of inspirational people and we are honored to give them an opportunity to play the great American sport of softball.”
Last year, 60 players took part in the American Softball league, which holds events weekly from May through August in “fun, non-competitive social environments.”
