The Vintage Softball Club of Santa Clara County, 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.
It's time to renew dues for 2020. For new members, any payment after October 1, allows you to play for the remainder of 2019, plus all of 2020. For returning members, 2020 dues must be paid by 12/31/19 in order to play next year.
Dues are unchanged for 2020, remaining at $125 for if you play in 2 or more leagues, $100 for one league or $50 for the Fun or the Weeknight League. (Note that the Weeknight League is free to members who play in one of the other leagues). You can pay by PayPal using the form below, or by giving a check/cash to any Board member or manager.
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….

The one-pitch tournament held on August 3rd was again a big-success this year! We had 8 teams, with nice participation from all the leagues and a few new-to-the club players. The picnic was also very well attended, with many spouses and family members joining in. Thanks to Ric Ferras for organizing and running the event, and to Jack Boniface (and Ric) for umpiring the games.
We will hold a tournament again next year, probably in March or April to avoid tournament weekends. Stay tuned for details.
You may have noticed a photographer taking pictures during our Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday games. Lisa Unruh has kindly been snapping action (or not) shots of many of us, highlights of which are shown at the bottom of this page. She has set up an album that anyone can access, so you can see and print out your own pics at https://vintagesoftballsc.shutterfly.com. You'll need to sign up for a Shutterfly account if you don't have one. Thanks Lisa!
The weeknight league is done for this season. It was a big success on Monday nights and will definitely be back next April. Stay tuned!
