Rochester was once the softball capital of the world. Rochester won the Fastpitch Softball World Series three times. When people talk about mens’ fastpitch they usually use the past tense, but SURPRISE!, mens’ fastpitch is still being played in the Rochester area.


Henrietta Recreation Department
Men's Fastpitch Softball League
Monday Fastpitch Division

Men are playing at the Henrietta Town Park on Caulkins Rd. It's between the Dome Arena and the town library. Well worth the trip just to see how much movement some of the men have on the ball, some of the pitching is over 70 mph. This is the last full league night of their season. The Men's League play with the same rules as the girls high school & travel. Pitching distance 46 feet and stealing only after the ball leaves the pitchers hand. There are 4 field at the park and some have slow pitch on them, look for the catchers with full gear and the straight level 60 - 80 mph pitches.
