GENERAL INFORMATION

The League is comprised of players from their early 50s to middle 80s. During the month of December, managers of the six (6) teams, will have the responsibility to select players for their teams.

Many of the players have played in National Championship Tournaments, such as, SSWC, SSWS, SPA, Huntsmans Games, ISSA, ISA, ASA and Florida Half Century. In November 2002, our travel team, the Port St. Lucie Ramblers 60s won the ISA Double A Bracket in the ISA World Championship, in Ft. Myers, FL. In March 2006 and 2007, the PORT ST. LUCIE RAMBLERS 65s, won the Double A and Triple A Bracket respectively, in the SS-USA SPRING NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT, which were both held in Winter Haven, Fl. In late October, 2007, the RAMBLERS 65s won the 65 GOLD BRACKET in the SOFTBALL PLAYERS ASSOCIATION WINTER NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT, which was held in Tampa, FL. Continuing their winning ways, the Ramblers, on December 2nd, 2007 and February 2010 went on to win the Florida Half Century 65s State Championship.

A 40 game schedule is played during the January to March season. Playoffs are held at the end of the season for the following  trophies:

1. Championship Trophy - Awarded to the winner of the Championship playoffs between the 1st Half and 2nd Half Champions.  Best 2 of 3 games.

2. Presidential Trophy -  Runner up in the Championship playoffs.

3. Memorial Trophy - Winner of a one game elimination round robin between the 3rd to 6th seeded teams.

The Memorial Trophy was established in memory of our deceased Commissioner, Lucas "Sarge" Casbar and deceased President, Donald "Niner" Holzer. Since their passing, a memorial stone, in the design of a baseball diamond, has been erected at Sandhill Crane Park. Individual memorial bronze plates with the deceased players' names are affixed to the base of the stone.

The league play is very competitive, but with the spirit of comradeship among the players. Any one who is at least 50 years "young" or will be 50 during the upcoming season is welcome to apply in one of the best competitive senior softball leagues on the east coast of Florida.
