Joan Crowley

May 5, 2011

If there are statistics kept in Charlestown for the all-time women’s softball leader in hits, runs and (OK) errors, surely Joan Crowley’s name would appear near the top of every category.  She is not the most talented player, but without question, is one of the greatest in “Townie” women’s softball history.

Much like Carl Yastrzemski had for baseball; Joan has carried on a love affair with softball for decades, and as player-coach has outlasted most of her peers, as well of many of her former players.  I’m guessing Joan is still a long way from softball retirement.
