Men’s 60 & over softball open

The Scripps Ranch Old Pros announced that sign-ups are now online for season five of the men’s 60 and over softball league.

The seven-inning games will be played at Sycamore Canyon Park each Tuesday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. beginning Tuesday, Aug. 15 through Nov. 14.

This league is ideal for senior softball players who have recently retired or have flexible work schedules.

Currently, the most senior player is Dr. Arnie Gass, who at 81 years young still plays a mean second base.

The Tuesday afternoon masters league uses senior friendly rules designed to minimize player contact and injuries. In addition to enjoying a little friendly competition, one of the best parts of the league is hanging out with your teammates and making new friends after the game.

League commissioners Steve Northcote and Kevin Clark have been involved with Old Pros softball for more than 30 years.

Email swnorth@san.rr.com or kclark@vitrek.com with any questions you may have.

Sign-ups will be limited to the first 56 players. Register online at https://srop.org/softball/.
