The East Hampton Artists & Writers Charity Softball Game has been postponed due to COVID-19. The game was scheduled for August 15 in Herrick Park.
“We held on to the hope of our having a game for as long was we could,” said board president Benito Vila. “We’re postponing until next year. Maybe then, we’ll play two. Our not being able to assure the health and safety of fans and players made the decision an obvious one for us. The board had been planning on having the 2020 game take on the socially distanced, picnic-like feel of the original 1948 game, but recent events locally and nationally caused everyone involved to reconsider that approach.”
