Once again the league is pleased to announce that complementary Medicare classes will be available to league members and their spouses.     

The classes will be taught by former board member Larry Green, a long-time league member. The classes will address Medicare eligibility and enrollment, Medicare Parts A and B, the Part D drug benefit, Medicare supplements and Medicare Advantage plans. They will be held at the Jewish Community Center.

The date of the next class is Sunday, February 19, at 1 PM, conference room A, just inside the theater entrance. Additional classes will be held quarterly throughout the  year.

If you are about to turn 65 or retire, these classes will help you make informed choices. Larry is a retired 39-year veteran of the health insurance industry specializing in regulatory compliance. He has professional industry designations of Heath Insurance Associate and Managed Healthcare Professional. He has been teaching Medicare classes at the JCC for several years.

These classes are free and open to the public. If you are interested, send an e-mail to Larry at alegreen2@sbcglobal.net or call him at 913-221-7475

You should start the Medicare enrollment process three months in advance of your 65th birthday.

Softball Day at the K

The following invite is NOT limited to KCMSSL members only, it’s open to anyone wishing to join us!!!

Our Royals “Softball Day at the K” event is scheduled for Wednesday – April 19th against the San Francisco Giants.  Current game time is set for 7:15.  However, please note — per the Royals, game time is subject to change.  If that occurs, those who have already purchased tickets, at that time, will be notified via e-mail.   We will also attempt to keep our KCMSSL home page updated on any changes — http://kcseniorsoftball.org/ .    Reminder – our KCMSSL Wednesday night conference games at Hartman Park, and/or Black Bob, will be delayed 1 week to allow for this event.


If you have not already done so, it’s time for you to pay for your game ticket(s) and / or parking pass(es).  We’ve reserved a block of 500 total Kauffman Stadium seats in sections 419 & 420.  Once those 500 are “sold”, overage seating could be in some other section.  So, although you have time to make your purchases, don’t delay.  Payment receipt deadline is March 18, 2017.   Click this link for a view of Kauffman Stadium from our Section 420 blocks of seats – http://imgur.com/a/ddPAp (section 419 seats are to the left).

Individual game ticket price via credit / debit – $17 each.  Via cash / check – $16 each.  The optional pre-purchase of a parking pass via credit / debit – $13 each.  Via cash / check – $12 each.  All parking passes purchased on game day are $15, cash only, at the gates.  “Pre-purchased” parking passes are sold along with game tickets only, which is what we are making available.   We are told parking passes cannot be acquired separately from your ticket, through the Royals. 

The almost-month-long malfunction in the process to purchase Softball Day at the K tickets/parking pass through our membership database has been resolved. Therefore, if you had previously attempted to make your purchase, and was unsuccessful, please go back to complete the process now.   Your ticket/parking pass purchase will need to be a separate transaction from paying for your annual membership dues.

To purchase tickets, and / or parking passes via credit / debit, click here https://leaguesheets.com/league/6 to complete the process.   KCMSSL members:  You do NOT have to log-in to your database record to complete this purchase, but if you do log-in, you can also — separately — pay for your 2017 membership dues.  Not having to log-in to purchase the tickets/passes allows non-members to participate in our Softball Day at the K event.

If paying for your game ticket(s), or pass(es), with a check, please make your check payable to KCMSSL.  Write it for the appropriate number of tickets you wish to purchase ($16 each) AND parking passes ($12 each).  Then mail it to Clint Berger, 12326 Ash St., Overland Park, KS  66209.

All pre-purchased parking passes will need to be picked up prior to game day.   The most convenient way to do this would be for you to come to Black Bob Park – 14500 W 151st St, Olathe, KS 66062 – sometime during our scheduled Pre-Season Tournament — April 8-9.  Planning to get your parking pass when we meet in Lot N prior to the Royals game is obviously “after the fact”.    If some other pick-up arrangement is required, please coordinate accordingly with Clint Berger – 913.481.7937, clintberger@hotmail.com .

Game ticket only purchases (i.e., without a parking pass) can also be picked up at the Pre-Season Tournament.  Or if you prefer, you can get them from us in Lot N before the game.   


Obviously not everyone will need a parking pass, if you share a ride.   Therefore, we encourage carpooling!!….please arrange accordingly.

Our game day pre-game activities will be in Lot “N”. Parking lot gates should open approximately 3 hours before game time.  The Royals suggest you enter through gates 5 & 6 for easiest access to Lot N — https://goo.gl/images/nJUHGl .   We will have grills at our gathering location, so if you have anything you’d like to have us cook for you, please bring it with you.   We will not be providing any drinks, so bring your favorite drinks with you also.

We encourage KCMSSL members to wear their league team shirt to the game.  Teammates wishing to set together, as a team (within our sections), are welcome to do so – simply coordinate this with us during ticket pick-up.

Any questions please reply to this e-mail.   Or feel free to call / contact any one of your KCMSSL board members.
