Vintage Softball League Seeks Senior Players from South Bay Communities
New Applicants Offered Free Trial Participation, May-July 2016
Subject to signing a liability waiver agreement, applicants may play for two days of their choice on one of 22 teams on a Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday. Games are played at parks in San Jose, Santa Clara, or Mountain View. Those over 60 years old may also play on Monday or Wednesday in San Jose.
Everyman's Softball League
With more than 200 active senior players over 50 years in age, Vintage Softball members come from local South Bay communities of Santa Clara County as well as cities as far way as Watsonville and Livermore. Club membership reflects the diversity of Silicon Valley and consists of current and former employees from high-tech and medical companies, education, police, fire, construction, and service organizations. Age and experience levels are equally diverse, with players ranging from 50 to 87 years old and whose prior playing experience runs from neighborhood pickup games to college and professional baseball.
Said Mark Loveless, President of the Vintage Softball Club, "We are an extremely diverse group, but we are unified by a single, common bond: love of playing softball. We believe there are many seniors in the South Bay who share a similar passion. Our invitation and trial offer is a way of encouraging more like-minded souls to join us."
