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.

Since many of you play with one, we thought you might be interested in this article about the last manufacturer of baseball/softball gloves in the United States. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features/2017-08-14/the-last-american-baseball-glove-maker-refuses-to-die.
Our weeknight league is coming back! This year we will be playing on Wednesday nights at Santana. More details to follow shortly but put Wednesday night on your calendars.
We are also looking for a commissioner for the weeknight league. The commissioner only needs to do minimal field prep and coordinate the selection of the teams before each game. Please let Jeff Greenberg know if you are interested.
The Club has a special offer for new Senior Players from South Bay Communities, the details of which you can read about in the Press Release.
Social. We need volunteers to help us organize, plan and manage events, including our annual Labor Day BBQ, outings at a San Jose Giants game and our annual Holiday Dinner.
Photographers. Thanks to Ric Ferras and Larry Murchison for taking the new pictures for our site! Please send in others you may have as we are always looking for good pics.
Contact. Please contact our president, Mark Loveless, if you are interested in volunteering for any Club positions.
While the tournament season is winding down, we continue to face a number of Saturday league games being made up of combined teams.
To help make the process easier, please:
We look forward to seeing all of you out there.
