The concept of an All-Star Selects Team originated with Frank Donnelly who recognized that, although the main goal of the Ottawa 60+ Slo-Pitch League is to provide recreational softball for its members, some players (both male and female) wish to play at a more competitive level. The League, therefore, provides for a Selects Team chosen from among League members, to play in exhibition games or tournaments with teams outside of our League. Frank became the first manager of the Selects and was succeeded by Merv Montroy. For many years, the Selects played a friendly tournament against a team from Rochester, N.Y., alternating between Ottawa and Rochester. Any League player may try out for the Selects. Contact the Selects Team Manager identified on the 'Executive' page for more information.

Financial support for the Selects Team is outside of the regular League budget. Funding is primarily provided by the proceeds of a weekly 50/50 draw. League members participate by voluntarily purchasing tickets. Fees paid by members to the League are not used for this purpose.
