About American Softball
American Softball is a registered Not-For-Profit Corporation under the laws of the State of New York in collaboration with the Community Advocacy Center, Inc., a 501 (c3) to provide inter-generational programs. The American Softball league is for challenged and handicapped adults to help those who suffer from mental disabilities.
The players get together once a week from May through August in a fun, noncompetitive social environment. The American Softball Organization is dedicated to helping people reach their full potential; mentally, socially and physically. It helps our members to increase their social skills while allowing them a chance to play America’s greatest sport.

Mr. Randy Novick, the founder and principal officer of the league, comes with a wealth of experience and has improved the lives of many challenged individuals by demonstrating to them that they are capable of becoming a part of the team regardless of their challenges and disabilities.
There is no other league like this in America, with the exception of the Special Olympics which meets only once per year for one week. While some people might think their challenges may inhibit them from playing a sport they dreamed of, we prove to them that they can do it and make their dream of playing softball a reality.
