Senior softball players sought
Submitted By Robert Askey
Get those softball gloves oiled and ready, itÕs almost time to hit the field and fill up the bases. But, more players are needed, and age is an asset.
A senior slow-pitch co-ed softball league, sponsored by the Hayward Area Recreation District (HARD) wants to add more players to its roster for the 2018 season.
The league is divided into three age divisions: 50-plus, 60-plus and 70-plus comprised of four to eight teams with a minimum of 15 players. Games are played Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings usually starting around 9:30 and finished before noon.
The 2018 season will run from March through September finishing with playoffs based on season standings.
Anyone who is interested in playing should attend practice on Tuesday mornings during February at the Castro Valley field off Castro Valley Road in Castro Valley. Games will be played at the Alden E. Oliver Sports Park 2580 Eden Park Place, Hayward.
A general meeting for players is set for 1 to 4 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 25 at the San Filipe Community Center, 2058 D Street, Hayward. Admission is free.
More details about the league are available by calling Mike Carroll at (510) 531-8075 or John Ironsides at (925) 548-1094. Player applications can be downloaded from the league website at www.hardseniorsoftball.com.
