Creston’s over-50 slo-pitch team seeking new recruits

Web Lead

With spring here, the Coffin Dodgers slo-pitch team is out practicing its baseball skills. This group of players are over 50 and under 86 years of age. Some have played ball most of their lives and some are just learning the game, but everyone has fun. Last year’s roster had 36 players, allowing the Dodgers to field two teams in the B division.

The season runs for early May to the second week in July. This year the team is looking for more players, male and female over the age of 50, and willing to have fun while playing ball. The Coffin Dodgers practice twice per week and play games during the week in the evening.

Anyone who qualifies and wants to meet the players in person, visit Centennial Park Sundays at 2 p.m. for practices or the Dodgers’ social at Rotacrest Hall at 7 p.m. May 1. For more information call Woody at 250-428-7878, Cliff at 250-428-2194 or Len at 250-428-4145.

Any other slo-pitch players wanting to play on regular teams can call Jim Ryckman at 250-428-2369.
