Senior softball teams have open invite

Game on!

Sequim’s senior softball club is gearing up for a big 2008 that includes a tentatively scheduled tournament in mid-May and not one but two tournament teams.

The 65-year-olds-plus team practices at 10 a.m. on Mondays, while the 60-year-olds-plus team practices at 10 a.m. on Wednesdays — both at the club’s home fields at Carrie Blake Park — while the coed scrimmage squads play twice a week (weather permitting) on Tuesdays and Thursdays, starting at 9 a.m.

Men and women are invited to join the coed teams that warm up on the twin fields and then typically scrimmage against each other at 9:30 a.m. or so. Men must be 50 years old or older while women need to be 45 years old or older. There is no maximum age limit.

For more information, call Jim Cole at 683-3524 or Warren Hunt at 683-4874 in Sequim. Port Angeles-area players are asked to call Bill Klover at 452-7266 or the Port Angeles Senior Center at 417-4554.
