Take Me Out…

F-Liners softball team logo…is not just the name of our nostalgic exhibit at the San Francisco Railway Museum, celebrating the days when the family car was a streetcar in San Francisco. It’s also a reminder that baseball season is about to start. No, not major league, but something more important: the “F-liners.” They’re a softball team in the SF Gay Softball League, founded in 2001 and named, yes, for the F-line. They play their first game (games, actually, a doubleheader) Sunday, March 22 at Moscone Field.
Market Street Railway members, watch for your next Inside Track, coming out in April, with a cover story on the many ways the F-line vintage streetcars have become part of the fabric of the city, and a potent promotional tool for San Francisco.
