SANTA CLARA COUNTY VINTAGE SOFTBALL


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. 


2024 Dues

For 2024, Vintage dues will be held at the same rate as 2023. However, as costs continue to rise, especially for fields, it is likely dues will increase in future years.

 

For new members, paying after October 1, 2023, provides membership through 2024 (up to 15 months!).

 

As a reminder, payments for 2024 are due by December 31, 2023 after which you will not be allowed to play until dues are paid. Paying early is always helpful.

2023 Holiday party

The annual holiday party was a big success, with over 100 people attending and great prizes being handed out.  While the music was too loud (and will be eliminated next year), it was a great chance to socialize with fellow Vintage members and theirspouses/significant others outside of the games.

PG&E CARE Program

Here is some information for Vintage members regarding a free program through PG&E called the CARE Program.  Under the program, at no cost to you if you are an eligible participant, a representative comes to your home, does an evaluation of how your home could be more energy efficient, and then sends a contracted company out to do work related to installing implementing those efficiencies - again at no cost to eligible participants. It could be insulation, weatherstripping, light bulbs , thermostat or other items that makes a home more energy efficient. Added to that, PG&E may lower your monthly payment for one year with the option of extending the cost savings. This information comes from friends who have already taken advantage of the program.

Contact information: Sal at (831) 854-8111.


Pictures

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!

Board Meeting

The next Board Meeting is scheduled for February 6, 2024.  Board meetings will continue every other month on even months. Minutes from the December meeting have been posted on the site in the Handbook/Rulebook section.


2024 Vintage Elections Cycle

It's Vintage Nomination and Election time! The 2024 Election Cycle for Vintage Officers, Board members, Commissioners and Award winners, will run through October and November. Results will be announced in December. 

 

This is a great opportunity to give back to the club. If you are interested in running for one of the positions, you will need to secure 5 nominations in the first round of the election process to get on the ballot. Ask your friends to nominate you!


Toys For Kids Charity Event

On Saturday, November 18, 2023 at Calabazas Park  our annual charity event was held, led by Ray Miranda. This has been a very successful event for many years, and 2023 was no exception, raising money and providing toys for needy children. 

You can still  give items to Ray or mail checks to his home at 5188 Calicowood Place, San Jose, 95111
