This year's Bill Heddles Recreational Center's summer adult softball program is nearing another completed season. Teams in four leagues battle for top honors as season-ending tournaments approach.

There's a difference in this year's play with the smaller number of teams reflecting a decline in participation from years past. The number of teams participating do so in four leagues instead of five. Gone is the Tuesday competitive coed league. Two leagues (Monday Coed 1 and Monday Coed 2) picked up the remaining players from the Tuesday league. Those leagues combined include roughly 180 players.

Thursday night play each week involves another 12 teams which play men's or women's slowpitch and involves another 144 participants.

Monday's Coed 1 league lists St. Michael's Angels as team leaders with a 9-1 record. Two teams share the next best records with 7-2 marks (Calhoun Outfitters and TSC Warriors).

The rest of the league standings (fourth through ninth) includes Mobile Homeez (6-2), The Chickson Dix (5-4), Ball Busters (5-5), Branham Construction (2-8), The Change-ups (1-8) and Waste Farmers (0-10).

Monday's Coed 2 leaders, Cornerstone Home Lending, the lone undefeated team in summer softball, with a 7-0 record. Hometown Electric/1140 Image is 7-1 and holds down second place. The remaining four teams are Berries and Cherries (4-4), Bad News Beers (3-6), Delta Family Fun Park (3-5) and Mom and Jenn's Cleaning at 0-8.

Thursday play, at Mountain View Park and Fields, features two divisions which feature men's and women's play.

Moralez Trucking has the top record in Men's Slowpitch with eight wins and two losses. Flight is 7-2 and rests in second place while last week's leader Big B's lost twice last week to fall to third with a 7-3 record.

Teams sitting in fourth through eighth included Fiddlers Green (6-3), Delta Metals Crusaders (5-5), Balls Deep (5-4), High Country Gardens (2-7) and Schiller Insurance (2-7).

As another season winds down, Cornerstone Home Lending has a 9-1 record to lead Women's Slowpitch play.
