The Retreads on the Terri Allard “Charlottesville Inside-Out” show.
Charlottesville Retreads welcome you to Senior Softball. Men must be 55+ and Ladies 40+. The second most important qualification is you must have a desire to have fun playing ball with a great bunch of guys & gals from all walks of life.
We have warm ups and batting practice at 9 AM every Tuesday and Thursday from March until mid October. The warm ups are followed by a 9 inning scrimmage game with first pitch at 9:30. Cooler spring weather start time 10 AM, or 1 PM
Once a month two Senior teams from Richmond and one from Altavista travel here for two 7 inning double headers. Games are followed by lunch provided by the Charlottesville players.
If you haven’t played for 20-30 years you are perfect!
Safety is our #1 concern. You are encouraged to do stretching exercise before practice. Pitching screens are used during batting practice and regular games.
Location is Darden Towe Park, Charlottesville. Darden is located off route 20 North, about 1/4 mile from Pantops 250 bypass. Turn in at the Elks Club sign.
On August 16, 2011, THE LANCET, one of the world’s best known, oldest, and most respected general medical journals, published the following article on exercise. ( Individuals who exercised 15 minutes a day, or for an average 92 minutes per week, increased their life expectancy by 3 years. These benefits were applicable to all age groups and both sexes, and to those with cardiovascular disease risk. )
CAUTION: Playing senior softball may cause you to spend more years with your Grandchildren!!
And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.
