It is hard to imagine the Red Sox having a season like they did in 2018 but hopes remain high as Boston looks to retain their nickname, Titletown. Since 2001 Boston’s professional teams have net an astounding 12 championships. It is truly the Golden Age for Boston sports enthusiasts.
Boston Gay Kickball league’s Spring registration opened last week for both Division A and B (Division A is more competitive and Division B is more social), but both are guaranteed fun ways to meet people.
Early Bird registration ends Monday, February 25th and after that pricing increases $10 to $85.000 per player plus a small administrative processing fee. You can either join on your own or recruit an entire team – everyone is welcome.
The spring gay kickball season starts on April 21st and runs for seven weeks, concluding June 30th with 50-minute games held every Sunday at Moakley Field in “Gay-chester” a.k.a. Dorchester. The league can only accommodate 16 teams so register quickly because this fills up.
