Summer is quickly approaching and that means slowpitch softball is almost back in Crescent City.

Registration is now open for the Del Norte County Recreation Department’s annual adult slowpitch softball men’s and coed leagues. The cost to participate is $500 per team until June 21, when the registration fee rises to $550. Registration closes after June 28.

Play will begin on July 8 with the men’s league competing on Mondays and Wednesdays, while coed teams will take the field on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

A mandatory managers meeting will be held at the Pyke Field June 26 at 6:30 p.m. at the snackbar.

Prior to the start of the adult league, the recreation department will host the annual Firecracker Tournament on June 29-30. The Firecracker is for men’s teams only and will be a one-pitch unlimited arc tournament.

The cost to participate in the Firecracker Tournament is $250, and the deadline to sign up is June 25.
