Registration for TriCities Senior Softball League22.pdfA LITTLE ABOUT US!

Senior Slow-Pitch Softball in the TriCities

Our senior slow-pitch softball has been open only to men, but starting in 2023 it is now open to women 55 and olderwho would like to get back in the game. The rules of senior softball have many safety features to minimize injuries and allow for substitute runners. We will continue to use 12” softballs and 65’ base distances and our adopted “Rules of Play” available on this website.

Our regular intra-league games are played on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at Winged Deer Park on the Bristol Highway in Johnson City. Participation in these games is guaranteed regardless of skill. Because the age levels are wide we try to keep everyone aware of skilled batters that need special attention when playing the infield. Our season begins in March and ends in early November with the weather often affecting the actual dates. In late October we have an end-of-the-season banquet to celebrate our sponsors, volunteers, and season.

Special games are available to players with advanced skills. There are regional games with nearby towns. The managers of these teams have the full authority for scheduling games and deciding who plays and what positions and batter order is used. Teams are often designated in age brackets to balance competition.

We also have had tournament teams for senior men only because they are sanctioned by national men’s organizations such as SPA or ISSA. The age brackets are 60-64; 65-69; 70-74; 75- 80; and 80+. Often a few players will play for teams from other areas in these tournaments or players from other areas get invited to round out one of our teams. There are national slow-pitch tournaments for senior women for those interested in playing at that skill level.
