SANTA CLARA COUNTY VINTAGE SOFTBALL



 

The Santa Clara County Vintage Softball Club, a California not for profit corporation, was founded in 1987 for men and women 50 years and older to play slow pitch softball. With over 200 active members, we offer both weekend and weekday leagues that enable players of all skill levels- some players are novices, most are intermediate and a few are actually in the Senior Softball Hall of Fame to participate in organized softball as many as 5 days a week, 52 weeks a year. To play, all you need is a bat, glove and payment of a nominal annual membership fee. 

 

Playing Vintage Softball creates bonds that last for years, or even decades. Here's a note we received from one of our players who despite having moved out of the area, still continues to be a club member!

 

Just paid my dues for the 24th time. I have been a member of this organization for a few years now. I haven’t played in San Jose in 9 years,  but I am on mailing list and I have paid my dues every year since I joined back in 1995. I think I have all the meeting minutes filed away somewhere on this computer. 

 

I have one of the old Vintage wind-breakers with the old logo on the back. I have an old hat as well but it starting to have an odor about it that some of the guys here offer hats for free just to bury it. But, I wear them constantly because I’m proud of Vintage. And a little publicity for the bay area doesn’t hurt – right?

 

I have been playing here in Fresno since 2009 and I am planning to play a few more years. I think they will have to carry me off the field to make me stop. But I do publicize the camaraderie that Vintage has had over the years. The best bunch of guys – EVER! The “Vintage softball club” will always be important to me. You can count on that. It made me feel young again and the people that I have know over the years is impressive. They were all family for sure….

 Respectfully,

 Paul Hebert
