I continue to be asked about the relationship between the CCSSL and OPTIONAL Senior Softball, LLC. The simple answer is that both organizations are in the business of offering playing opportunities for seniors. Long-time CCSSL player, Mike McCluskey, formed OPTIONAL Senior Softball, LLC as a private, for-profit company. Mike still remains a member of the CCSSL. There have been comprehensive discussions between both organizations. OPTIONAL offers playing opportunities that the CCSSL does not. Mike has generously offered to donate some of the proceeds from his tournaments to our League. There has been some concern that the CCSSL will lose players. We will be fielding 18 teams this summer. We fielded 18 teams last summer and the summer before that…and so on. While two distinct organizations, we nevertheless expect to work effectively together, resulting in more opportunities for softball enthusiasts to play the game we all love.
The CCSSL’s 70’s Travel Team began the 2019 Tournament Season accepting an invitation to play in the Fifth Annual East Coast Senior Softball Tournament in Pompano Beach, Florida March 7th, 8th and 9th.
Playing together for the first time as the Cape Cod Dugout Dawgs, the team was seeded fourth out of 14 teams competing in the 70s age group.
The highlight of the tournament was on day two when the Dugout Dawgs beat last year’s Tournament Champion and this year’s number one seed Cc Medical Services 18-8. Cc Medical is rated by SSUSA as a Major Team.
The ECSS Tournament allows only 65 minutes per game and batters began each at-bat with a one and one count. The Dugout Dawgs batted all 14 players each game producing 118 hits with the team batting average of .608.
Additional tournament activity is planned this year including the Cape classic in September and the SSUSA Winter Nationals in Fort Myers, Florida in November.
Welcome to Our Player Profile Form!
We are looking to collect information on our players so that we can develop a profile that tells about the varied backgrounds of players. None of this information will be used to talk about individual players. It will allow us build a composite profile of the players in our league for public relations and fundraising purposes only.
Just Think, if You Apply This Year at the Age of 50, You Could be Playing for the Next 47 Years!
