Best Way to Spend a Sunny Sunday Afternoon

Mossball at Mosswood Park

Summer in the Bay Area is, as we all know, often more of a two-sweaters-and-cloud-cover affair than a cutoffs-and-sunshine situation, but on those few days when the fog burns off early and this actually feels like California, there’s no better way to kill a couple hours than with Mossball, a loose conglomeration of friends and strangers who gather in Mosswood Park every Sunday for pickup softball. Depending on who shows up, games can be totally laid-back or surprisingly competitive — or, much more commonly, somewhere in between — and seeing what happens is all part of the fun. Bring a glove and your game face.
