Irvington Summer Softball League (ISSL)

Recommended Posts

So in my town of Irvington, New York, a bunch of college students (with me as one of the founders) created our own softball league which has grown substantially since our first game in 2010. We try to be as fauxfessional as possible, appearing to be a major league while really being a bunch of guys playing well-organized softball. We get players from all ages and all walks of life, and have many big events throughout the year.

I design all of our stuff, from event logos to shirts to video production. So without further adieu here are some logos!

Here is a video intro from the 2012 Championship Series, only a couple minutes long:

Now here are some other graphics from the league promoting various things:

We also have uniforms which I have designed, here are some pics of those unis in action. Since we have players from all different towns north of New York CIty, they are represented by those town's colors. From the Bronx to Ardsley, we have representation from everywhere:

Wow. This is really cool. You put a lot of effort into this. It must be fun being commisioner of your own real life league. I hope I get the chance to do something like this in college.

It's definitely one of the best things I have ever been a part of. And to be one of a few responsible for making it real, I can say it's amazing to see something like this become realer and grow. Being comish of your own league is great! Check out your YouTube page, lots more stuff on there:

For example here is a promo from our "This is the ISSL" series (many of which are ISSL-related jokes):

And our of our drafts (which are quite long, but good to leaf through if interested)::

Needs proper uniforms and not :censored:ing T-shirts.

Yeah, because a bunch of college kids and guys who recently graduated can afford full uniforms. I think you missed the point of the league.
