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.
