Join the WGAE Softball Team Today! Season Starts April 7

Ricky Vaughn

When you’re sick of screenwriting, consider some sun exposure instead! Think about joining the WGAE Softball Team: It’s good exercise, it’s great networking—and we usually win, too. Our Opening Day is Monday, April 7, 2014.

Generally, Team WGAE plays our games at 5:30 or 7 p.m. on Monday evenings, at Central Park’s Heckscher Ballfields, right next to Columbus Circle. We even have a team uniform (well, an official WGAE softball T-shirt) and everything!

Now we need you—ESPECIALLY if you’re a woman (because we have fewer female players than male ones)—but all are welcome to join. You don’t need to be super-experienced, but you do need to have a great, supportive attitude, since not everyone gets to play every game.

Even if you haven’t picked up your mitt in a while, the drinking component should put you at ease: After each game, we retire to a nearby pub for beer, wings, socializing, and rewriting the script for those match-ups that didn’t go so well.

Join the team! Email Timothy Cooper at to join!
