CitySoftball 2014 Has Been Saved...

It took letters like this one

" I am writing on behalf of the Citytsoftball Fall League that has played in Inwood Hill Park since 1999. 
Unfortunately, we were recently informed that the Inwood Hill Park would not be available at all after September 28th of this year."  

"Last fall the fields were closed and receded and this has been a summer with reasonable rain fall. The fields are in very good condition and we are surprised at this decision.  It is a rarity to see dead grass or any indication that the grass is suffering or needs additional rest.  Everything appears in good shape so will you kindly explain to us why the Inwood Hill Park fields are closed?"

"I am humbly asking that our permits get reinstated and the fields remain open until early November as has been the norm. We love Inwood and playing fall ball there every year is our last real outdoor enjoyment before another long harsh winter sets in. The opportunity to play in September, October and early November at the best fields in the upper Manhattan is a matter of great enjoyment and pride for all our players, not to mention the many other New Yorkers and tourists that come out to watch us play some of the highest level softball and baseball in the city."

and more importantly face to face meetings 

but CitySoftball has been saved.
