One of my favorite teams in the police softball circuit is Chicago Metro and there are many reasons for this.
For example, Chicago Metro travels extensively and supports many tournaments throughout the nation. Chicago Metro tends to seek out tournaments that draw highcaliber teams, and even if they are outgunned, they never shy away from a challenge. You won’t hear a Chicago Metro player complaining about having to play one of the monster teams in the circuit; instead, you will see them lace up the cleats and go to work. Lastly, they have what could be described as the strongest fan base in the nation.
