The Latest CCSSL News
Tomorrow will be my final day as the Commissioner of the CCSSL. I will turn over the reins to Van tomorrow morning at the Board Meeting.
I want say thank you to all of the players that I have had the pleasure of getting to meet over the last 13 years. Thank you to everyone who has given of themselves to help make the League better. I strongly encourage every player to help out even in the smallest way. Everything makes a difference! I will leave you with the thought expressed to me by a teammate my first year playing. When there was a bit of a squabble going on out on the field, he turned to me and said, "I thank God every time I can put on the uniform and go out and play the game."
As I mentioned at the Annual Meeting, this year will be the year that the Board reviews all of the policies for next two years. It is anticipated that suggestions will be coming from many different people. In order to organize and streamline that process, a form has been developed to accept suggestions for changes and/or new policies. Only suggestions developed on this form will be considered. Below, you will find a copy of the form as well as a copy of the existing policies. In order to change a policy, several things have to be included, including why the existing policy is not working with specific examples of the shortcomings. Please assist the Board so that they can review and complete all of their work in the most efficient manner. Thank you!

PAYING TO PLAY – FALL BALL FEES
In Fall Ball, when you pay to play, money is generated to pay for the field rentals, the umpire fees, new balls and the online app we use to stay organized. Beyond that, at least $1 goes into the CCSSL general fund every time you play in a game to help keep our summer league fees low.

Now that our regular season in over, we invite any league player to join us for 45 minutes of batting practice (beginning at 9:15), followed by a 5-6 inning game every Tuesday and Thursday morning at Kelley 1 field. This should be of particular interest to ALL Winnett/Rose Division players since a number of players showing up to play at the Carroll Masters also play in that division as well.
We want to continue the Carroll Masters Division as more than a “batting practice only” offering because the League already offers that on Tuesdays/Thursdays at the Harwich fields. The Carroll Masters Division will continue to play for another three months (normally until the end of November) at no extra charge to players. So, now that the regular season is ending, come join us if you want to continue playing during the weekdays.
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.
