NorCal Starts First 80+ League in 2014
Dec. 1, 2013Softball News Report
CARMICHAEL, CALIF. - Carmichael Park has been the host for senior softball leagues for players age 65 and up for many years. In the 2014 season, the league will become the first weekly league for players age 80 and over.
One player, Don Wilson, who will be 92, is the only remaining active player from the first Golden Senior team organized in Sacramento in 1976. He is a testament to how senior softball is a team sport that can help seniors stay active and healthy past age 90.
Visitors are invited to watch the amazing Grand Golden Geezers (80+) play the younger and less experienced Golden Geezers (75-79) on Carmichael Park softball fields 3 and 4 on Thursday mornings during the season that begins on March 6.
Golden Senior Softball is for men age 50+ and women age 45+. Any old geezers 75+ who want to be involved at Carmichael Park are invited to join their practice sessions during the off season on Thursdays at 12:30 p.m., weather permitting. For more information, contact Larry Campbell, 916-485-4843
