Each week guests and staff play each other in an all-island softball game. People of all ages and skill populate the batting order, while others cheer from the front porch and along the foul lines. Guests often volunteer to announce the games or play music during inning changes. When softball is on the schedule, everyone’s attention is focused on the action taking place on the front lawn.

Star Island softball has several unique qualities like a position to play in the graveyard which takes over a portion of outfield. There are no strikes, ever. And a dirt road marks the boundary between infield and outfield.

Softball equipment is located underneath the front porch to the right of the front porch steps. Anyone is welcome to practice with the equipment and low-flight softballs.
