a real life Field Of Dreams for softball's best
Notes from senior softball meeting Feb 5, 2018
This meeting was intended to gather opinions from team managers on how to structure leagues for the 2018 season. No final decisions were made at this meeting. Final decisions will be made at a second meeting in late March or early April.
The 50+ league is likely to have 16 teams, one big league, no divisions, same as prior years.
The 60+ league is likely to expand to 12 teams. Since no extra fields are available on Monday nights, the 9pm game time at CAF is being considered. Using the 9pm slot would mean we no longer need to use the field at Byrd school, thus easing the burden on park district staff, and also easing the scheduling of umpires. Each team would probably not have more than 2 games scheduled for 9pm.
Since several 60+ teams already have too many players, it was suggested that a new 65+ league be formed on Tuesdays to give an opportunity for players who have not been getting enough playing time, including those who are younger than 65. The park district will support a new league if there are enough players to populate at least 4 teams.
All managers are asked to provide names of players who would like to join this new Tuesday “super-senior” league. Email names to swingfixer @ hotmail.com .
