Gray Wolves open invitation for softball fun

Time to dust off your softball gloves: Spring is finally here and Sequim’s Senior Softball Grey Wolves are in “full swing.”

Club members invite all current and former men and women ballplayers to join them for informal play in Sequim.

The Grey Wolves are a co-ed league with age requirements of 50 plus for men and 45 plus for women. Players’ ages currently vary from the mid-50s into the high 70s.

As many as 50 members from all across the area gather at Carrie Blake Park each Tuesday and Thursday with warm-up at 8:30 a.m., batting practice at 9 a.m. and games beginning at about 9:45-10 a.m.

All players are accepted and encouraged to turn out. Some players go south for the winter and others turn out year-round when the weather permits. The group plays both recreationally and competitively throughout the summer months.

The objectives of the club, members say, include: to foster, promote and encourage co-ed senior softball in the Sequim and Olympic Peninsula region; to promote good sportsmanship and to provide positive social interactions among the players.

The top two rules are to “have fun” and “play safe.” The league has modified rules that emphasize limited contact to help ensure lower risk for injuries.

For more information, call Annette Hanson at 670-6774 or email to greywolves.senior.softball@gmail.com. Or simply show up at the Carrie Blake Park ballfields behind the Guy Cole Center at 10 a.m. on a Tuesday or Thursday.

Registration for league play is underway until May 1.
