Do you like being around awesome people? Do you enjoy having a cold one outside on a nice summer evening (surreptitiously of course)? Are you a former college athlete? Do you have hilarious jokes?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, we want you on our MACDL softball team.
As many of you know, MACDL sponsors a softball team in the Hennepin County Bar Association League. There’s still room on our roster. We are looking for guys and especially ladies to join our team.
This is a co-ed D team–meaning this is a “beer league” or a league for fun. Our competition is other law firms from around the Twin Cities. We play on Tuesday nights in Northeast Minneapolis–game times are 6:15, 7:15, or 8:15. If you are interested in joining the team, contact us, and we’ll get your information to our team captain!
You can also follow our Softball Updates blog, with game reviews written by our players.
We love our fans too!

MACDL’s Legislative Lion, Kelly Keegan, was instrumental in getting a new Minnesota Expungement Bill signed into law last week!
Governor Mark Dayton [on May 14, 2014] signed a bill that will give a second chance to thousands of Minnesotans who are taking honest steps to support themselves and their families. The new law (Chapter 246, HF2576) creates a more thorough expungement mechanism that allows judges to permanently seal the criminal records of reformed offenders – making it easier for these Minnesotans to secure good jobs, access quality housing, and provide for their families.Read More
