Adult league softball at Jerry McDonald Field is a summertime island tradition.
Batter up! The Port Aransas Softball Association has two divisions in its league. A co-ed division is made up of six teams: Deep Sea Headquarters, Cherokee, Coldwell Banker, Crusty Phoenix, Fins and The Gaff. The men’s division consists of Island Boys, Shorty’s, El Gato Charters and Wolf Jaw. Games are Tuesday and Thursday nights. The season ends Aug. 4 for the co-ed division and Aug. 13 for the men’s division. Clockwise, from above, are some moments from a June 23 game: Mike Ortiz of Deep Sea Headquarters swings; Coldwell Banker’s Fisher Lawton chases a fly ball; Jay Jones of Deep Sea Headquarters exchanges high fives with Coldwell Banker players as the game ends; Regina Love of Deep Sea Headquarters waits on base with Coldwell Banker’s Andy Eccleston in the background; and spectators enjoy the game.
