Coed softball is a cherished tradition in St. Louis. Once the weather’s warm enough, young adults (and sometimes not-so-young adults) take to the ball fields on evenings after work, or Sunday afternoons. Some softball leagues are fairly competitive, but most exist for more social reasons. They’re a chance to be with friends, have some laughs, and of course, go out for a bite or drink afterwards.

Finding a softball league can be a bit daunting, as many leagues recruit teams successfully just by word-of-mouth. So if you’re looking to field a team, but aren’t sure where to play, here’s a list of some of the more popular coed slow-pitch softball leagues in the greater St. Louis region.
