Tuckahoe Sports to start indoor co-ed softball league

Tuckahoe Sports has announced the first Indoor Co-Ed Adult Softball League of its kind in the region. The new 10-week league is designed to offer young and young-at-heart adults, ages 18 and over, an alternative to the standard slow-pitch softball league. This fast-paced version of softball allows players to enjoy playing on a leveled playing field, where home runs are nonexistent and everything is in play.

Weekly games are played at the TSI Training Center on Tuesday and Thursday nights and will start at 7 p.m., 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. The league will start on August 7 and end October 11 with a one-day playoff for all teams on Saturday, Oct. 13.

Each team costs $500, which comes out to $50 per person for a 10-person roster. Roster sizes are not limited to allow for fill-in players when needed. Each player needs to bring a glove but bats will be provided, if desired.

For more information or to sign up, call Patrick Long at 360-3395 x110.

CMoR reopens at new Short Pump site

The Children’s Museum of Richmond last week opened its new Short Pump location at Short Pump Town Center, to the delight of children who attended a sneak preview of the location July 10. The new facility, located under the forthcoming LL Bean store (formerly the food court) is 8,500 square feet in size – much larger than CMoR’s former Short Pump location at West Broad Village, which opened in 2010. The new space includes The CarMax Foundation Service Station, the Silver Diner, a grocery store, a performance stage and an art studio, as well as a giant Light Bright Wall. > Read more.

Minion mania

Spinoff is predictably silly, devoid of plot

In Minions, those jibberjabbering little corncob things from Despicable Me have finally earned their own feature film. Specifically, three of them: Kevin (tall), Stuart (plays the ukulele) and Bob (loves his teddy bear), all voiced by co-director Pierre Coffin.

After tracing the evolution of Minionkind – we don’t know what they are, but we know they’re hardwired to serve the baddest villain around – our three Minion heroes set off upon a quest to save their species and find the newest, nastiest villain overlord. > Read more.
