|SSUSA ESTABLISHES NEW 85+ MEN'S DIVISION|
In a historic move for the sport, Senior Softball-USA today announced it is launching an 85-year-old division.
"We have been discussing adding the 85 division - the oldest division in the sport - for the past year with Hugh Brotherton of the Center For Sight team in Florida," said Terry Hennessy, chief executive officer of Senior Softball-USA. "This division extends the opportunity to play to the oldest seniors in the sport."
Center for Sight is the first official 85 year old tournament team and they plan to play at the Spring Nationals in Polk County, Florida in April. "We believe there will be more teams, as players hear about the 85+ division," said Hennessy.
The first year, the 85+ teams will be allowed five 83-year-old players and five 84-year-old players. Please contact George Moreno, National Director at Senior Softball-USA for roster questions regarding the new division at (916) 326-5303.
