Adult Sunday soft ball returns!

 Our season will start May 31st

The games occur on Sunday mornings from 8:00am until 10:00am........actual games start 8:15am allowing for some warm-up

Most of the games are played at Harvard Fields #1 thru #4 in Irvine (near Jamboree & 5 FWY)

There are typically 20 regular season games which establish the Playoff Seeding of the teams as #1 thru #8 seeds.

After the regular season, there is a double-elimination Playoff.

The season runs from March 1st thru about mid-November (about 38 weeks) depending upon weather, and field availability

The cost of the league is $80 per week per team. However the league has invited us to play the first 2 weeks free of charge.

"Work life balance" is a buzz phrase these days as we try to accomplish more in ever shorter amounts of time. But the idea of ensuring life is in balance is ancient. Our Torah portion reminds us that in addition to taking a whole day off per week (Shabbat) and various festival days through the year, every seventh year ought to be a Sabbatical. In Biblical times the work of that era (primarily agricultural) ground to a halt. Today we must remember to take time to step back from our work and look at the big picture; to rest and reassess our life's priorities. Our struggle to find balance is not a new one. It is part of the human condition. Our Torah calls us to try to get it right.

Shabbat Shalom
Rabbi Gersh Zylberman
