PLAY BALL! The season starts on Monday 3/19. Park says the fields are good. Rain should hold off until late afternoon.
Start time is 1:00 PM until further notice....
NEWS: The Tennessee Olympic folks have decided to cancel softball events going forward. This is the result of the lack of entries over the last couple of years.
Good News! Paul Cann is back at home, see address and directions below.
Good job guys, we collected $226.00 for the Billy Q. Memorial Bench.
Chris Theodore's wife, Lu, passed away early last Sunday morning. Per Mary Terraforte, secretary at St. Francis Catholic Church (telephone number 931-484-3628), Lu's body will be buried in Michigan. A memorial will be observed in Fairfield Glade in February at a date yet to be announced. For those who didn't know, Chris was one of the original founding fathers of Crossville Senior Softball.
BTW: If you meet someone thinking about joining our group, point them to our website which has all kinds of info about playing.

Many of you know that we maintain a plaque commemorating those players that have passed on. It's usually only pulled out at the winter luncheon. We now have a "virtual" plaque that can be viewed at any time. Follow this link: http://www.crossvilleseniorsoftball.com/memorials.aspx

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 facilities 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.

On March 20, 2017 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 50 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.
