Bay Leaf Baptist is north of I 540 off Possum Track Trail off Six Forks.
St. Philip fields a team in the North Raleigh Men’s Softball Mixed Softball League, which is run by Bay Leaf Baptist Church. The softball team serves as a wonderful means of fellowship and fun during the summer.
We play once or twice a week during the season, including a single-elimination tournament. All persons of at least 14 years of age are welcome to play.
For more information about the league or St. Philip’s team, contact Mike Davis.

2019 Season Summary
St. Philip entered the end of season single elimination tournament as the #7 seed. In the sweltering July evening heat, our team played a good game against Bay Leaf Baptist, but did not advance into the second round. Despite the loss in the first round, it was a good season for the ‘boys in blue’. Joining our veterans this year were several new faces and two younger men, Brennan Davis joined his dad, Coach Mike Davis, and Jake Gibson joined his dad, Steve Gibson. It was great to have two father-son duos – we appreciated the young legs, good arms and solid hitting. More importantly, the fellowship and camaraderie on our team was excellent. Going into 2020, consideration is being given to becoming a mixed league. It would be great to see some women join the ‘folks in blue’. We look forward to the 2020 campaign.
