The Latest CCSSL News
Due to the spreading virus concerns across the country and here on Cape Cod I have decided to announce the following directive to Board members and all CCSSL members:
Members of the Board of Directors and the Commissioner are very disappointed at the postponement of these softball activities during the month of April and, perhaps, beyond.
Moreover, with all the uncertainty and activities regarding COVID 19, I believe we as a senior softball league must remain vigilant and continue to adhere to the ongoing guidelines as recommended by experts in the health fields.
I will continue to reach out to our membership by keeping you fully engaged and informed with softball plans as we move into the months ahead.
Thank you for your cooperation and support in adhering to these health regulations.
With positive and strong fellowship I’m confident we will, in time, defeat this serious epidemic and once again join together on the field of play.
Van, Commissioner CCSSL
TO ALL LEAGUE MEMBERS
March 15, 2020
With the outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic several weeks ago and its impact on daily lives to all, the following actions have been approved by the CCSSL Board of Directors at its monthly meeting held Saturday, March 14, 2020.
Effective immediately all CCSSL activities are postponed until further notice. This directive includes, but is not limited to, all on field activities at locations reserved by the League: Kelley 1 and Baker (Dennis), Porter and Memorial (Harwich), Sandy Pond and Homer (Yarmouth).
The Board of Directors and the Commissioner will provide timely updates and further notifications as guided by our local, state and national public health agencies.
We urge all League members and new player recruits to keep posted by viewing our website: www.capecodseniorsoftballleague.com for further directives and pertinent information to be forthcoming.
In the meantime all CCSSL members, umpires and other participants should be aware of the COVID-19 virus and take the necessary precautions to avoid exposure and possible contamination. Therefore, a precautionary “no contact handshake policy” should be observed at every level until further notice. Players, coaches, others should verbally say “good game” without shaking hands, high fiving or fist bumping.
We, the Board of Directors and the Commissioner appreciate your cooperation in following these guidelines as we work together to maintain he highest health and safety standards.
It is clear that the greatest danger is to seniors ages 65+. Our primary concern as members of the Board of Directors is the health and welfare of players, officials and their families.
Van Khachadoorian, Commissioner
Cape Cod Senior Softball League

We know that many people have been waiting to see what the divisions will be for 2020 will be before submitting their applications. The Policy Review Committee and the League Structure Committee have been working for several months on developing a format for the league that will allow all players who wish to play competitively with that opportunity. The result of that work is that there will be four competitive divisions with each division having no fewer than four teams. Divisions will also be formed using a combination of ages and ability as is stated in the bylaws. Whether you are 50 or 95, there will be a place for you on a competitive team. More information will be emailed to you shortly. There will not be a combination of the two morning divisions this season!
To Review and/or print all current policies
A new venue will be taking place at the Dome at the Bridgewater Sports Complex in Bridgewater for this winter. A start date will be established once we have have established how many players sign up. This will be only for Simpson Division and Winnett/Rose Division players and only on Tuesdays this year. We will be starting BP at 9:30 followed by a game at 10am till noon. Ride sharing will be available from the Cape. We sincerely hope that you all will consider playing and having a great time.

Dome ball starts in December. We have reserved two mornings (9:30 to 12:00 Mondays and Fridays). The cost is $12-$15 a player depending on the number of players. We do a round of batting practice and then play a pick up game.
The trip takes approximately 50 minutes from Hyannis and we do carpooling at the parking lot at the community college if people are interested.
Please respond with an email to Peter Cutler email@example.com if you are interested. We need this information so that we can put together groups with similar ability levels.

The 2019 Joseph Cassidy Spirit of Softball Award winner is Wayne Draeger who has made the CCSSL Classic the envy of softball tournaments. Thank you, Wayne for all of your hard work!
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!
Senior Softball Team Features a 97 Year Old Catcher and a 90 Year Old Pitcher!
As you enter the path that leads to Memorial Field, be sure to take a look to your left and see the new memorial to Joe Cassidy, the founder of our league! Joe is the player who made this possible for all of us by starting Senior Softball here on Cape Cod back in 1987.
