Slo-pitch league always recruiting
There aren’t a lot of hard and fast rules in the Nanaimo Adult Recreational Slo-pitch League, and players like it that way.
If a team is short a player, maybe someone will trade teams for the day.
There might be 11 fielders at any given time, or there might be more or less.
Someone will keep track of runs, but hardly anyone will know the score.
There is one rule that’s firm:
“Any ball you don’t get was unplayable – there’s no errors,” said Dave Elmore, league president.
The softball league for men aged 50 and over and women 45 and over will hold its registration Tuesday (April 17) and Thursday. Organizers plan to fill up five teams that will play games Tuesday and Thursday mornings at the McGirr Sports Fields until the end of September.
“Come out and have fun,” said Donna Easthom, one of the players. “The camaraderie is great.”
Everybody plays and everybody takes at-bats.
“Everybody has to feel like they were contributing in some way,” Elmore said. “Really, the purpose of the league is to belong to a group and have a positive experience.”
Registration starts at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday and Thursday at McGirr, to be followed by pickup games.
