whiffle WHAT?





Several years ago, current owner Tim Reiman and his high school friend Brad Henderson, discovered an abandoned field across from Tim's home. After cutting down the three-foot tall grass, the two visualized creating their own "Field of Dreams".

Like many others, Tim and Brad were avid Whiffleballers. Sparing no expense, they spent every last dollar between the two of them to build the whiffle ball field of their dreams. Pineview Park, as it came to be known, drew national attention. It was one of the only whiffle ball fields in the country that had lights to be able to play night games. Pineview Park also had a playing surface that included over 600 sq yards of Bermuda Quicksand sod, which is the very same sod played on by the St. Louis Cardinals. What made Pineview Park stand out as one of the top five in the country (Fast Plastic Magazine) were the games that were played, epic battles with participants traveling from as far as Georgia and Texas. Many media outlets dubbed Pineview Park as a "Real Life Field of Dreams!"

Meanwhile, Tim and Brad had another dream. A pizza shop! While contemplating possible names for the establishment, the two decided on a familiar subject, whiffle ball. Whiffle Boy's Pizza was born. Tim, who spent his childhood on the ball fields of De Soto and Murphysboro, and Brad, who grew up in Carbondale, decided that Murphysboro would be the perfect location for the restaurant. The restaurant officially began operation in 2005. We have now had the opportunity to serve the residents of Murphysboro for the past 12 years. We truly appreciate the business and hope to continue on for years to come!


Whiffle Boy's Pizza is 100% locally owned. All of the profits stay in the community.
