If You’re 60-Plus, Give Stafford Senior Softball a Go

Stafford Township — If you’re 60 or older and ever in the mood to play a little ball, the Doc Cramer sports complex in Stafford Township is a viable option. Really, you can even do as Luis Davila once did – just grab your glove, show up, introduce yourself and take the field. Just don’t hit the ball at the “Frito Bandito,” because he’s a good fielder.

Nonetheless, Stafford Senior Softball can use a few more players – or a dozen – and there’s never a cover charge to play. It’s all free and open to players of any ability level. You don’t even have to be 100 percent healthy. Many of the players, some well into their 80s, sport various braces for jointed areas of the body.

Games are each Monday and Wednesday through October, and sometimes into November, weather permitting, and begin at 10 a.m., with batting practice preceding each game. As the summer progresses, games may be a little earlier to avoid the hottest time of the day. Teams are selected based on the number of players who show up to the field – this is not a league and there are no organized teams, divisions or standings. It’s all about leisurely fun and a little competition.  —D.B.
