|Senior Softball in St. Louis|
To senior players in the St. Louis area: Is anybody out there interested in trying to grow the game in our region? It seems to some of us that interest is fading, and we need to turn it around.
I've had a team at BMAC for the last 5 years, and we've recently seen a drop in the number of senior teams in the two divisions there. In addition, we all know how hard it is to find local senior tournaments or other senior leagues. The only other regular Over 50 league is on Thursdays in Ferguson, and there are a couple of over 60 groups down in the Fenton/Kirkwood area, and you can play pick-up softball with the Over 55 guys that play in Kirkwood on weekday mornings. To my knowledge, that is all there is around the St. Louis area.
Most of us are aware of the great organization that our softball brothers (and sisters) in Kansas City are part of. For your consideration, here’s a link to their website: http://www.kcseniorsoftball.org/
They’ve been at it for a long time, and we don’t necessarily need to try to catch up to them. However, if we as a group don’t start putting some effort in to expanding our game here, I think it may just dry up altogether.
So, are any of you willing to get involved with establishing a group to come up with ideas and actions to spread the senior softball gospel? Do you have some thoughts you’d like to share or some energy you’d be willing to contribute to support some activities? I don’t know what it might wind up looking like, but it seems to me we need to do SOMETHING for the game, and therefore ourselves.
I’d appreciate hearing back from anybody that might want to get involved. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org and my phone number is 314-608-6354.
