The Latest CCSSL News
Hope all is well with members and their families. Stay safe, be vigilant, wear masks and follow the self-distancing guidelines during this pandemic.
Aware that members are patiently waiting to hear the results, CCSSL Board members met the evening of May 27, 2020 through Zoom technology in order to discuss the re-opening of the League for the 2020 season so that they might make summer plans accordingly.
Following much discussion and careful, thoughtful input from all members present, we regretfully inform League members that, effective immediately, all CCSSL softball activities are suspended for the 2020 season. This directive includes the elimination of all regular games, the Annual Cape Cod Classic Tournament and the Annual League Banquet held in mid-September.
This suspension was brought about due to the uncertainties of field availability this summer in Dennis, Harwich and Yarmouth. Further, a great many concerns were also expressed by Board members regarding the issues of (1) safety for our players, guests and others who may attend games during the summer months and (2) how to insure player safety in accordance with the state guidelines as required by local health officials.
Board members also addressed the matter regarding player registration fees paid for the 2020 season and have developed the following options:
On behalf of CCSSL Board of Directors we are most disheartened by the necessity to make this decision. We do so with the guiding principle as contained in the CCSSL By-laws that safety for our members is of paramount importance and a high priority as we manage the day to day operation of our League.
We sincerely hope that our membership will understand and support this most difficult decision which was due to the unprecedented outbreak of the COVID 19 pandemic.
Van Khachadoorian, Commissioner
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!
