Bull-Lehman Modified-Pitch Men's Softball Looking for Players

April 5, 2014 at 10:55 PM

Chatham Men's Modified-Pitch Softball has been around since the early 60's and was started by two Chatham Boro residents Cal Bull and Les Lehman.  Modified-pitch is a form of fast-pitch but without the windmilling that fast-pitch pitchers do.  But the pitched ball can curve, rise or drop making it harder to hit which is the point of the game.

The Bull-Lehman league currently has 7 teams in the league and games are played during the week starting at 6:30 p.m. and on some Sunday afternoons at the Shepard Kollack Field complex.

 The season normally runs from early May until late July.  The games are attended by team member families and other spectators who enjoy watching a softball game.
