Welcome to the NEW POPS website. Special thanks to Andy Eisner for developing this.
The POPS Championships are now completed. Congratulations to all the Champions.... Onto POPS Fall ball.
POPS FALL Ball league is officially full. Fall ball will be starting September 8th and play until the last week in October.
An appreciative "thank you to Andy Eisner & Howie Gallub" who will be the POPS Fall Ball Commissioners. Once fall ball starts all questions, issues and concerns go thru them.
* Check this site weekly for updates, field availability, scores and standings.
POPS Softball is a league that allocates any additional monies raised or left over to help others. We do so with "scholarships" to kids going to college, to helping "families in need" come the holidays.

This year POPS had 2 divisions in the 40+ & 60+ Over leagues, an A & B. In addition to 3 divisions in the 50+ league an A, B & C. Totalling over 560 players on 34 teams. Due to the overwhelming demand from NEW players and teams, POPS will be expanding in all leagues in 2022.
For me personally the 2020 and 2021 seasons were some of the most rewarding years I've had as Commissioner. The outpouring of appreciation from players and wives has made us realize we did the correct thing in opening last season, when other leagues did not. POPS Softball allowed for some sort of normalcy. It gave men a chance to get out for a night and enjoy everything POPS has to offer. "POPS is more than just softball, it's a Brotherhood".
I'm excited for this next year. After the recent articles in Newsday and the Herald, POPS has been approached by many new teams looking to join us. Stay tunned, stay up to date by checking back to this webisite.
