ABGSL provides fun recreational and competitive softball for girls in grades K-9 on fields all across Albany and Berkeley, CA. The league's main recreational season runs from March til June with competitive and additional recreational programs at other times of the year. Founded in 1983, ABGSL is a non-profit, all volunteer league that offers a positive softball experience for every girl who wants to play.
Dear ABGSL Family and Friends,
It gives me great pleasure to announce that the softball field at Codornices Park is now officially named Jane Hammond Field. Our proposal passed the Berkeley City Council last night unanimously.
Special thanks to all those who helped make this happen, including Victoria Eisen, Phil Catalfo, David Wampler, Bruce Goddard, Dan Brotsky, Greg Lyman, Sandi Hunt, last night's eloquent speakers (Michael Lewis, Betsy Candler, Shawna Brotsky), everyone who showed up last night in support, all those who attended the Parks and Waterfront Commission hearing in April, the ABGSL Board, the Jane Hammond Field Naming Project Group, and all 551 signers of our petition.
Jane could not be more deserving of the honor and recognition. She embodies so much of what our league is about: selfless volunteerism, teamwork, and consistent leadership for our girls and our community. Thank you, Jane.
