Since 1981, the J’s co-rec softball league has been a mainstay of Mercer Island summers.
Whether you’re a competitive veteran after the title or a rookie just looking to relax and have some fun in the sun, we’ve got a place for you. You can assemble your own team of friends and coworkers or join up with some new friends. So dust off your glove, lace up the cleats, and get ready to take the field.
Did you know that one of the founding teams is still led by its original captain? Or that an estimated 5,000 people have played in the league over its 35+ years? Learn a few fun facts about this great SJCC tradition!
