Winter Play At Your Own Discretion

Winter Play (December - March): the Blog will be inactive, but, if you so desire and weather permitting, the fields will be available for play from the rest of December until sometime in March when we officially start the 2017 season.  I will email you when the Park says we can go back to our regular 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.
