About The Bay: Seniors Stay Sharp In Redwood City Softball League

REDWOOD CITY (CBS SF) – A Peninsula softball league features a number of players a bit past their prime, but still very much young at heart.

Players on the Redwood City Señors Softball League include athletes in their 70s, 80s and even 90s.

It’s a 50-and-up league but most players are of retirement age. The players crack jokes about having to test for steroids – though they realize they may actually be medically prescribed.

Adding even more depth to the rosters:  a number of women – some also in their 70s – who play with the men – perhaps proving that softball diamonds can be a girl’s best friend, too.
