4th Annual Myrtle Beach Trip
The 4th annual mens' Myrtle Beach Can-Am Senior Slo-Pitch games will be April 9, 11 and 13, 2018. There are no ball fees to be paid. Contact David Fox if you wish to go or for more information. Spectators are also welcome. We'd like to have the team(s) in place by the end of September to be able to take advantage of accommodation discounts at this time of year.

Sponsor Lunches
Throughout the season we organize a visit to each of our restaurant sponsors on game day. The sponsors make a significant contribution to our summer fun. Some of that happens when we visit their establishments. Please consider joining your fellow players and other League participants for some of these events. About a week in advance, let your Team Captain know you'll be attending. We encourage you to visit our sponsors at other times and let them know that you are from our league.

The RA Fieldhouse gives us a percentage back of what we spend so please remember to let them know that you are with our league whenever you go there. Vice President Judi Haines is our social convenor.

Monday Ball
The games are on non-holiday Mondays at 10:00 a.m. Anyone is welcome to show up at the RA Diamond #1 and teams will be made up when you arrive. The cost is $20.00 for the season or $2.00 per week. Monday Ball. Thanks to the organizers of this activity.

Batting Practice
There is batting practice every Thursday morning at 9:30 at Hampton Park.

Home Runs
The Homerun trophy is awarded for the most HRs hit over the fence during the regular season. Make sure your scorekeeper/captain reports all of yours.

Rainouts
In case of rain an email will be sent out on gameday morning by 8:00. Please show up at the RA if you haven't heard anything either from the league or your Captain. It may be raining at your house but not at the RA. Games that have been rained out are normally played on Wednesday if the diamonds are available.

Email Communication
Email is the primary communication method of the league. If you are not getting email notices, or if you know of anyone who should be getting them, please let the league know. ottawa60plusslopitch@gmail.com
