    The cf'ers in the wild thread reminded me of awhile back there was talk of a summer cf softball game. There was decent interest but not enough to play. Thinking with how cf has grown that maybe this would be a possibility now.

    I'm definitely down for this. Living in Ames this summer kept me from coaching baseball back home, so I'm itching to get back on a diamond in any kind of form.

    I think that'd be fun. Basketball during the school year has been a success so we should give this a shot.

    I think if you called it beerball instead you'd get more takers.

    My team is basically dominating our corporate softball league.

    But it might be because we have 3 guys that got drafted in the MLB and all 3 got up to AA. But I'm clearly the MVP :jimlad:

    I would consider it depending on the day/location.

    Are beerball and softball not the same thing?

    If they are, I feel I should have gone to more ISU softball games when I was in school!

    Either play 16 inch softball or baseball. 12 inch is a game for chicks.

    Need 9 to a side plus a few sub's, so probably looking for around 25ish. Last time this got discussed location was kind of an issue.

    Agree about location. Have it where I'm at and I'm in.

    I'd obviously prefer it to be in Ames but I could probably make it down to Des Moines if that was a better option (unless you're just talking about specific fields and not the town).

    As for numbers, obviously a lot more difficult to fill out a game than say, basketball. Maybe a player from the other team can catch, and the pitcher can run to home if there is to be a play at the plate? Other than that I can't really think about ways to get the numbers down, other than someone volunteering to be the pitcher the for both teams. I guess it depends how competitive people are wanting it to be, but the number can't really deviate from 8-9 players per team.

    I would say the opposite. Oh and I'm down for this.

    Last time around DM people wanted it there, Ankeny people wanted Ankeny. I would prefer Ames, but right now the 13th street fields are crap.

    Would love to have it in Ames, but I'd be up for carpooling if it's not.
