Watch out for the 80s
The 2022 plan is to have a series of 3 exhibition games for players 79 and older during Week 5 (65s & 75s) will be incorporated into the 2023 event.
We will set up a sign-up for those players, divide the players in consultation with 75s managers who can assist in making it as even as possible; we plan to play games Sunday-Tuesday-Thursday mornings. Seven innings or maybe just 5, limiting pitchers to 3 innings each to keep their 75s managers happy.
Roy Hobbs will supply jerseys & hats – Knights & Oilers, et al. Charge will be $30 a
player to cover umpires, baseballs, hats to keep, etc.
