DeSoto Park

The coolest thing I learned today was from talking to some guys who just got back from the Real Madrid-Inter Milan match Downtown.  They were kicking the ball around.  I struck up a conversation and it turns out DeSoto Park is the site of a long-running adult semi-pro soccer league.  It is played on Sunday's and it is an International scene with players from Mexico, Central and South America, Bosnia, Croatia, Poland, of course old time St. Louis guys, etc.  These guys described an awesome scene where the families of the players cook out and socialize while watch the games.  The fields are in good condition as are the goals.
