Thursday, October 27, 2016 -- Play Ball

Looks good for play. Temps will be in the 60s.

End of the Softball Year Luncheon will be held on Monday, December 5th, at 11:00am at Spikes Sports Grille, 4568 Peavine Rd, in Fairfield Glade.  If you plan to attend, please register on the signup sheet at softball before November 17th, or email Paul Cann at  Price is $12 which includes salad and coleslaw, chicken strips, pulled pork sandwich, house chips, cheese cake, and soda or tea.  Cash bar of beer is also available.
We will continue to play through the month of November as long as the weather stays warm enough.  If necessary, due to colder temperatures, we will change our start time to 10:00am.  Hopefully, we will soon get notice from the Park that we can move back to our fields at the Warner Complex.

$20 Voluntary Contribution to Support Softball

In order to support our Monday/Thursday Senior Softball, we need bats, balls, first aid items, and other equipment.  Since we do not have a sponsor, you are requested to contribute $20 at the beginning of each season to help defray costs.  This is strictly voluntary.  Softball board member, Ted Meadows, will collect contributions and deposit them in our Bank Account.  Optionally, players on TN State Olympic teams can give their $20 to their team captains.  Once again this is voluntary, and no giving records will be kept.  The City of Crossville has been very generous to Senior Softball over the years.  In addition to giving us free access to our beautiful softball facitlites at Centennial Park and Garrision Park, they pay our fees to participate in the State Senior Games in Franklin, TN.  Hopefully, we can all do our part to keep Senior Softball alive.

New Player Age Rules

On July 11, 2016 leadership of Crossville Men's Senior Softball League decided to lower the new player eligibility age.

(1) To be eligible to participate a player must reach the age of 55 prior to Dec. 31 in the year of first participation in the league.

(2) Any current players that may not meet these age requirements are grandfathered-in, and may continue to play.

(3) The eligibility rule does not apply to any ladies who may wish to play in our league.

(4) In the future, on any play dates when we have 32 or more players and can have four teams, we will make every effort to divide players so that players below 70 may compete with players in their peer age group while players 70 and over may likewise compete against their peers.

The sole objective of these rules is safety.
