Topic: General and miscellaneous
Discussion: state of the game

Maybe one of the problems with not enough teams, is it's too hard for most guys to find a team in their area. At least that's my problem. Why isn't there some place that lists the teams by area, with the manager's name and number, and where and when they play? I live in an area with a huge population of older people (Orange County, CA), and I feel like I have to belong to the FBI or CIA to successfully hunt these teams down. The few leads I've gotten have not returned my calls or emails, so I can only conclude that they don't need anybody. I've been playing on an any-age D level city rec team in Irvine for years (in fact, I manage it). There are probably a hundred teams in that city alone, but NONE for 50+. Ditto for most of the other cities. I heard Huntington Beach and Newport Beach have leagues for older players, but I can't find any contact info. This is the best website for Senior Softball I've found, but even this one is woefully lacking in any really useful information on how to find a team. I'm sure once you're on a team, it's a great site, but I've been left out in the cold, looking in. There must be hundreds of guys my age who love to play, but who either have no idea where to look, or who have given up in frustration, like I'm about to. I'm just looking for a team within a reasonable distance where I can play every week. I don't have the time or money to go to tournaments hundreds or thousands of miles away, which is what this web site seems to cater to.

Thanks, DMac. I looked on the Tournaments page, but didn't see anything coming up for Anaheim. Are there other places I should be looking?

Thanks, Pete, Softball Gramps. Unfortunately, I'm a young 54. My birthday's in April. Hopefully, something will turn up in the 50+ bracket for the meantime.

I'm looking for a team to join in the Orange County area. I'm 54. I'm an accurate (0.5 walks/game) lefty pitcher, 6' 1", about 200 lb. I also play infield, hit pretty well (line drive to left, center hitter). I've been managing a D-league team in Irvine for the last couple of years, but now looking for a new game. Anybody have any leads?

Unfortunately, I'm too young (54) to join your team (feels strange to say that). I'm looking for a team to join in the Orange County area. I'm an accurate (0.5 walks/game) lefty pitcher, 6' 1", about 200 lb. I also play infield, hit pretty well. Anybody have any leads?
