Softball began in Geneva and surrounding areas in the early 1900's. The men would play ball until they got too old to run to first, or they ran out of pinch-runners. They would have an annual all day and evening tournament every year. The wives would run the food stand and bake lots of pies and desserts too. It was a BIG day for all. Roughly guessing, the Geneva Fast-pitch team started in the 50's. They won State tourneys and went on to National's several times. They had a bus that they would travel in to surrounding areas and states to play softball. The kids teams got started with all age groups. We host team games from several counties, and they play in both of our parks full time during the spring and early summer. The Fast-pitch pretty much just plays for fun now instead of a big challenge. We would like to have people swing down and watch the action as well as enjoy the good food stand that the parents take turns running.
