Community Sports: Slowpitch leagues starting soon, Grandy 9 Golf leagues forming

C-I Slowpitch seasons starting early May

Sandquist Park on the north side of Cambridge continues it upgrades to be ready for another ball season. New to the complex this year are scoreboards which will benefit both fans and players.

The Thursday night Men’s League is the first to get underway with the April 21 season-opener for the 16 teams. Unfortunately, organizers had to turn away 12 teams since time constraints and field availability limited membership. The league is looking forward to Phase II of the park’s construction when more softball fields will be added to the north of the hub.

CICB Little League games will be held at Sandquist Monday evenings, starting May 2. The 35-Over Men’s Masters League begins Tuesday, May 3, and the Women’s League starts Wednesday, March 4.

The following are tournament weekends currently scheduled at the complex:

• June 10-12– 16th annual Cambridge Classic which is expecting 30 men’s and women’s squads
