Our Mission: The East Hampton Artists & Writers Annual Softball Game and its events are dedicated to building a community around the game and building a better game to serve the community. In the spirit of one of the longest-continuing traditions on the East End, artists, writers, supporters and volunteers come together for entertainment, competition and fun to benefit local charities that provide vital human services. We ask for your help in hitting it out of the park for the community we share and love.
