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. 

 

Interested? Please visit our Join Us page for information about how to sign up, and be sure to check out our Limited Time Offer for New Players (details below).

Weeknight League

The weeknight league will resume next April, probably on Monday nights. We are 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.


Updated: Communication re Combining Teams (Saturday League)

Players,  there has been too much trouble getting the Saturday early games started, so we are going to try this slightly more regulated system. Players need to follow the rules below. BE ON TIME. Ric Ferras will be helping the commissioners, in organizing whether we combine fields or not.

  

1.      Managers poll their teams during the week to learn player availability.

2.      Players report to their respective assigned field before 8:50 a.m. Bucket players report to the stands behind home plate at field 2.

3.      Players who are in transit but will be late notify their manager via phone.

4.      Managers and commissioner take a count on each field, considering players in transit.

5.      Managers and commissioner decide whether to combine teams.

6.      Managers and commissioner determine the combination, using bucket players. Players may be moved from their own teams.

7.      Latecomers are assigned where needed (which may not be to their own team).

 

8.      Play ball!

  

We look forward to seeing all of you out there.
