Mens softball league in DC (or DC area):

“About 12 friends of mine are looking to play in a men’s-only softball league in DC this summer. Does anyone know of one? We’re not looking for anything overly competitive, but want basically a Zog or USS-like game if possible. Anyone know of a league taking teams?”


graffiti on yield to pedestrian sign (and others):

“I reported the graffiti on a number of street signs at Connecticut & 20th NW (just north of Dupont Circle) on May 8 (to 311) and on May 22 (to Jim Graham) and haven’t gotten any response.

This is a safety issue – with the “yield to pedestrian” text covered, it is much more likely that a pedestrian gets hit crossing 20th St. This is the intersection: https://www.google.com/maps/@38.911874,-77.044935,3a,75y,171.97h,76.48t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1s9IoSYSKPMkiA_V6_z5_hhQ!2e0

Does anyone know how to get this issue resolved?”

    I live in DC, but because of old co workers that started a team over a decade ago, I play in Arlington. The “D” League is for the beginners and teams range from 20 year olds to 60 year olds. Its not a league where you goof off and just go and drink beer, but the D League isn’t overly competitive. Sometimes you have to heckle someone complaining about a call with “Its only D League softball!” Im sure DC has similar leagues, but this is just the one I know about…

    First step is to understand that contacting Graham’s office is pointless.

      Well aren’t you helpful.

      It’s pointless because it’s ward 2. You need to write to Jack Evans office. Better yet call 311.

      • nevermindtheend

        I reported it to 311 on May 8. Is calling any different than entering it in on the web?

        • saf

          Yes. Calling is much more effective.

    Since he lost the primary, Graham has been totally unresponsive. Try going to David Grosso — very responsive, in my experience.

    Graffiti in general seems to be exploding — I live on Park Rd NW and it’s disappointing to see all the care taken in renovating the row of stores in the 1400 block being undone by a swirl of graffiti. The side of Pho 14 is especially bad and the owners are letting it get out of hand.
