Festival Fields Park

Festival Fields Park, above, hosts softball tournaments and leagues.

The city of Avondale is registering adults for its spring softball leagues. 

The season for men’s and coed leagues begins April 6 and includes 14 regular season games and an end-of-season tournament. Teams sign up for the night they want to play. Every week each team will play two games against other teams in the league. After a seven-week season, all teams will make the playoffs. A single-elimination tournament will determine the overall league champion.
