Central Park softball league for performing artists

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

If you walk past the softball fields in Central Park on a Monday afternoon you may recognize some of the players in the Performing Arts Softball League.

Jack Mulcahy, an actor, has been the commissioner of the league the past eight years. And if he looks familiar that's because you may remember him from "Sex and the City" or maybe the great film "The Brothers McMullen," in which he played Ed Burns' older brother.

Mulcahy's teammate is another guy you may recognize: Curt Champlin from "The People's Court," which you can catch every day at 3 p.m. on Fox 5.

You've seen actor Sam Robards in a ton of movies, including "American Beauty." He has been playing in the league 32 years.

Even the umpires in this league act. Butch Krichman was in the movie "Righteous Kill" with Robert De Niro and Al Pacino playing (what else) an umpire. Krichman has been umping in the park and all over the city for the last 36 years. That's more than 16,000 games. And he doesn't care how big of a celebrity you are, he'll ring you up.
