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. 


2022 Dues

For 2022, there will be a $50 surcharge to cover the extra costs of playing at Arcadia on Saturdays. Otherwise, dues will be unchanged for 2022, remaining at $125 for if you play in both the Tuesday and Thursday leagues only and $100 for one league (Tuesday or Thursday ). The Fun or the Weeknight League are $50. The Weeknight  and Fun Leagues are free to members who play in one of the other leagues.  And as always, any players 80 or over with 10+ years in the club play for free.  You can pay by PayPal using the form below, or by giving a check/cash to any Board member or manager. (Returning members- note there are some new payment classifications, so read carefully to make sure you sign up for the correct leagues).

UPDATES

Arcadia Ballpark has opened for Vintage Play!  The opening ceremonies for the ballpark were on Saturday, July 17 and included Vintage Saturday play.

 

The July 30 edition of the Evergreen Times carried a front page story covering the opening of Arcadia Ballpark, with the story highlighting Vintage play. Several of our members were quoted about their Vintage experiences- great publicity for us! The link below will take you to the newspaper and the story:

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.
