[August 07, 2008]  For several years, area churches have been gathering during the summer months to fellowship together and play ball. --

DonutsThis year, seven churches were involved in the league.  Those seven churches are Mt. Pulaski Christian Church, Lincoln Christian Church, Jefferson Street Christian Church, Zion Lutheran Church, Prairie Land Christian Church, Minier Christian Church, and United Pentecostal Church.  The games generally begin around the end of May and the teams play through until the end of July (just before the fair) with a double elimination tournament to end the season.  Jefferson Street Christian Church was this year’s champions with a 10-2 season and no losses during the tournament.  2nd place went to Lincoln Christian Church and United Pentecostal took 3rd place. All games are played out at Memorial Park by the Elks Country Club and it is free of charge for the league thanks to the Lincoln Park District.  This is a co-ed slow-pitch league with an age minimum rule of 14 years.
