goes out to Joe Ferlin, Tom Coyne, Wayne Wrightman and Tom Kulwicki
from the GCSS for being inducted into the Wall of Fame. The food was
good the company was good, what else could you ask for? The GCSS was
well attended at the Banquet. Special thanks goes out to Shelly for
having this affair which is a large part in keeping softball alive and
well here in Cleveland. It is nice to be over 50 and still be playing
a kids game. Sometimes we do not play as well as we did as kids but
after a few beers sometimes we feel we play better now.
to the 3 GCSS teams on their excellent performances in the Senior Olympics
just concluded in Cleveland. Almost half of Greater Cleveland Senior
Softball’s players competed in these US National Senior Games
that just ended on August 1.

Two seven inning (double headers) will be played on each field.
Besides a regular season of 36 games, the league also includes a First Half vs Second Half Championship Series, a One-Pitch Tournament, and a double-elimination Playoff Championship. Teams are balanced before the season so that games remain competitive.

Safety is emphasized with the use of a second first base bag and a separate home plate for runners. A Safety Screen is available for any pitcher that wants to utilize it. Collisions are not permitted and any runner violating this rule is called out.
