Organization Information: This is community sporting organization for Adult Slow-pitch Softball which relies on the support of its members, sponsors, supporters, volunteers and past players. The Programs currently include men’s, women’s and co-ed leagues. Dustin Wilson is the acting director of the Binghamton NY Softball League(s).The City of Binghamton NY previously ran this league and its programs for over 60 years. This summer we have 83 men’s, co-ed and women’s adult slow-pitch softball teams. With the addition of Co-Ed leagues, local tournaments and the full Fall Season; there will be more teams than in previous years past.

Mission Statement: Develop, direct and promote the sport of amateur adult and junior softball through a coordinated effort. Seek to enrich the quality of life for the participants we serve by providing safe, accessible, diversified programs for all in an effective, efficient, equitable, and responsive manner. The “Sunday Funday” League is great for couples, families, beginners and those looking to have a good day out! (16+ years old to play)

 To encourage the union and fair play of all eligible teams and organizations or groups, we have separate classifications. (Majors, Upper, Lower and Co-Ed)
 To promote and conduct all types of Tournaments and Softball Leagues. (Qualifiers, Regional’s, Etc…)
 To encourage and facilitate the planning and building of a new 2-4 field complex for the triple cities and southern tier areas.
With the introduction of our new Co-Ed Slow pitch softball leagues, my goal of these family programs is to help the individuals that make up families grow spiritually, mentally and physically. The games and activities help families grow personally by building self-esteem and self-reliance. Families can strengthen their positive values by learning and applying our core values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and faith to their lives through our programming.
Build Developmental Assets — Create an asset-rich environment for all families and Co-Workers. We provide facilities which have been shown to help foster a positive environment.
Lead healthy lives — Provide physical, mental, and well-being for men, women, children and their families. Hold competitions to encourage weight loss and changes lifestyles.
Appreciate diversity — Help families celebrate their own beliefs and respect people of different ages, abilities, incomes, races, religions, cultures and beliefs. We have leagues designed for all levels of play. (Beginners – Majors)
Become better leaders and supporters — Give families an opportunity to work toward the common good of a group; promote leadership development through volunteer development
Improve personal and familial relationships — Help families learn to care about, communicate with, and cooperate with one another; help families connect with other families for support and friendship
