Are You Old Enough? Are You Bold Enough?
If you were at the Royals game against the Giants on April 19th, you probably noticed some of the over 400 senior softball players and their fans, milling in the crowd and cheering on the Royals. In a cooperative effort with the Kansas City Royals, the Kansas City Metro Senior Softball League was honored with Senior Softball Day at the K.
Many of the senior softball players attending the game proudly sported their team jerseys. Others wore shirts from local, state, and national tournaments in which they had participated, and in some cases, won. The shirts of a few reflected participation in the Kansas Senior Games, where several area teams compete. These shirts carry the motto of the Kansas Senior Games: “You don’t quit playing when you get old, you get old when you quit playing.”
Although Senior Softball USA recently recognized the Kansas City Senior Softball league, with over eight hundred members, as the largest in the United States, there is room to grow. There are openings for men and women coming into their prime, (or perhaps a bit past it) to play softball at any one of a number of metro area Missouri and Kansas parks.
As you approach, or hit retirement, you are faced with a number of choices. A fun and healthy choice is to stay physically active by participating in recreational sports. So, are you old enough? The women’s league is open to ladies forty and over. Men’s leagues range from a minimum age of thirty-five (in our youngest league) to a minimum of fifty (in the majority of our leagues). Many player compete well into their seventies and eighties. Are you bold enough to play senior softball? Change always requires commitment, but getting and staying active may add years to your life and will definitely add life to your years. Check out kcseniorsoftball.org and get in the game.
