In memoriam, we acknowledge the recent passings of two members of CCSSL who were instrumental to the establishment and success of the League’s Travel Teams. 

Dating back nearly 20 years, both Phil Cunningham and Dick Larned were foundational players.  Phil was a player manager and Dick a perennial leadoff hitter and leftfielder.  They were key contributors in the early days of organizing a 60s travel team capable of competing in tournaments on a national level.  Under the banner of the Cape Cod Old Timers Softball League. the group participated in and won tournaments up and down the East Coast and Florida and eventually in other states including Arizona, Nevada, and Utah.  Indeed, their representation helped put the Cape on the map in senior softball and contributed to the growth and popularity of the Cape Cod Softball Classic. 

This legacy continues as their former teammates continue to compete on 75s and 80s travel teams and CCSSL team play.
