Seniors in North County (San Diego) have a great way to loosen up their bones and meet a great bunch of people. Join us in playing softball!
So who is a "Senior"? We say that men and women as young as 55 qualify. That's it, every one is welcome!
The North County Senior Softball League is recreational, so all skill levels are welcome!
Don't worry that you haven't played in decades-most of us hadn't either, and safety is our first concern. After all, we want to continue for a long time. We have several players in their 80's, still going strong!
We play league games on Tuesday & Thursday mornings on fields in Carlsbad, Oceanside, and Vista.
BE SURE TO JOIN US FOR PICKUP GAMES AT ALGA NORTE PARK IN CARLSBAD ON MONDAY MORNINGS STARTING AT 9 AM FOR EVALUATION AND TEAM ASSIGNMENT INFORMATION.

OCTOBER TEAM OF THE MONTH
SCORES-THURSDAY OCTOBER 8TH
NUCCI'S 9 THAT PIZZA PLACE 5
"9 to 5" what a way to win a game. Down 5 to 2, Nucchi's got 5 in the 4th inning to take the lead and never looked back. That Pizza Place hit the ball hard all day but some key double plays saved the game for Nucch's. On one double play, Rich Reynolds took the throw at second and then went to Rocket Ishmael at third base to complete the double play. Rich also had a monster 2 run homer in the 6th inning to help seal the victory. Paul Muszalski made a great leaping catch in left field for That Pizza Place. It was hot but still a fun and competitive 7 inning game. Thanks to Larry Sontag for filling in on his off day and thanks to all for a game with good sportsmanship.
GOT PAIN 16 TERI 12
Shorthanded Got Pain 11 at Overloaded TERI 15 played 11 on 12 had TE out strong with 5 in the 1st and 3rd, 10-7 TE. Then GP chipped away and got stubborn in this 16-12 GP win. Ron Cipriano game ball, 5/5 on this beautiful day overlooking the ocean at Calavera. Hope Joe Itson, taking one for the team, feels better after taking a rocket shot off the back at 2nd. Thanks Janet, stealth, Wood and Larry Sontag for umping.
SCORES-THURSDAY OCTOBER 8TH
O-SIDE PAINTING 12 CARLSBAD INN 3
Chuck Kinnick pitched a strong game for OP, and was helped by 3 for 3 days from Lou Alliano and Mike Davis. Carlsbad Inn couldn't muster much offense, and the highlight of the day for them was when Hank Plotkin struck out John Wakeman with a 97 mph fastball in the 3rd inning. Jim Biksacky homered for O-Side Painting. Thanks to Steve D'Agostino and Ed Elliot for helping out 2 short handed teams in the heat of the day at dusty Lake Park.
PIZZA PORT 15 LIFELINE 14
In their second straight "nail biter", Pizza Port handed Lifeline, only their 5th loss of the season. With 2 out and no one on trailing by 5, PP strung together 8 straight hits, to pull out the victory. Admittedly some of the hits were a little "funky", but made up for quite a few hard hit balls, caught earlier in the game. Dave Grull and Eddie Gillette each had 4 hits and Bob (Boomer) Baptista, homered. His ball went all the way to the fence at Pine, and the throw arrived a second too late, turning another "homeriple", into a legit HR blast!!!! THe big lefty, Paul Shook had another solid pitching performance.
The 2015 Summer/Fall season began on Tuesday June 23rd, featuring 6 teams playing 3 games at Lake Park in Oceanside, including Got Pain?, O-Side Painting, Nucci's, Pizza Port, Carlsbad Inn, and Lifeline, who were the Winter/Spring winners of the Jack Brown Tournament.
