Throughout the summer we hosted a summer softball league on the west side of Little Village with a total of 8 teams and another one on the East side with a total 13 teams. Each night we had kids games, food, music and hundreds of people coming out to build community. This is what peacemaking and building the beloved community looks like. It’s hot dogs, softball, kids games, laughter, music and love.

In the coming weeks, we are having the top 3 teams from each side compete against each other for the Crosstown Classic Softball Game. We will soon be announcing the time and date on our social media platforms! The purpose is to “play for peace” and break down walls between neighborhood divisions through sports.
