The Team(s)

A single CERN team called 'CERN Fermions' is participating in the GSL in 2014. It is the unification of Quarks, Leptons and welcomes many newcomers. A physics aside: Fermions is a category or type of particle. There are six quarks: they are named the 'up' (or 'u') and down (or 'd') - these are the ones that make the proton and neutron, and thus are responsible for most of our mass/weight, and the more exotic strange 's', charm 'c', top/truth 't' and bottom/beauty 'b'. Leptons are the familiar electron (which some know about from high school or university physics or chemistry), its heavier brother the muon, the super-heavy tau and their neutrinos. Quarks and leptons are all fermions - in fact they are the only known types of fundament particles which are fermions. Other particles, such as protons and neutrons which are composed of quarks and gluons, can also be fermions. (The Fermions team roster on the website are under construction.)

About The Club

The CERN Softball Club is an official CERN Club comprising both people associated with CERN and others who enjoy playing and/or watching slow-pitch softball. Two CERN teams, the Leptons and the Quarks, play games from May through September against other teams in the Geneva Softball League. Women and men of all ages and levels of skill play on the CERN team and anyone interested is encouraged to join the club and give it a try.

How to Join

If you are interested in joining the CERN Softball Club or if you would like to know more about it, please contact any of our Committee Members or just come out to one of our games. For now, all of our games are played at Childers Field located between Collex and Bellevue. The dates and times of games can be found in the Event Calendar and/or GSL Schedule.

CERN and the World-Wide Web

The CERN Softball Club was the first softball team to publish a home page on the World-Wide Web. The reason for this is that the Web was originally created here at CERN. If you would like more information regarding the history of the development of the Web at CERN (yet another good reason to support fundamental research), I suggest the following resources:
