what's going on.
Our league here in central Delaware had games scheduled for Monday night, June 24th. They were cancelled due to so called impending thunderstorms by league officials.

What is strange about this situation is the league officials are all on the same team and their team was supposed to play a undefeated team, and there is no love lost between these two teams.

Consensus has it that the team cancelled due to not enough players or did not have the team they wanted to field. A ll the other teams showed up to play, something is fishy about this situation.

boogpow44, why don't you and others like you run for a league office.Just as long as you let those people run the league you are going to get the same treatment. It's time to stop complaining and do somthing about it.

Ceres. Therein lies the problem, there are no league offices per say, our league is in its 3rd year. We are affiliated with our county parks and rec and they let these guys get away with this nonsense, things should change next year because many of the players have had enough.

boogpow44, why wait for next year? It is only June. I'm sure if 5 or 6 guys, representing different teams in the league, got an appointment with the appropriate parks and rec director/softball supervisor and told them what is going on, the county guys will come up with a solution. Parks and rec guys like senior softball: if you pay for field use, their county government is happy over additional income; if you get the fields free as residents, parks and rec looks good with this program for seniors (the new "teens"); if the league is growing, then they won't want to jeopardize a successful program.

Well, here we go again, same team cancelled today because of heat. This team cancelled 2 weeks ago because of impending thunderstorms, now today heat is the problem, but they played 2 days ago in the same heat. I've never
In my life seen grown men, so scared to play ball. Pathetic, just pathetic.

That's how they play senior softball in kent county Delaware.
