Senior Softball Beaufort (SSB) reports the start of the 2023 Spring season. 

The league is seeking individuals who enjoy softball and want to play in a 50-plus senior softball league open to men and women, dedicated to fun, safety and competition.

Currently, the League has eight teams with more than 120 players with six local sponsors. Teams are looking for new players, with an option of assembling one or two new teams based on the level of interest. 

SSB teams are built with a goal of parity through a draft process, so individuals are recommended to register online and strongly encouraged to attend at least one open group practice for assessment and placement on a team. 

“We want players of all abilities and will build team rosters that foster friendships, fun and healthy competition” said League Commissioner and co-founder Rick Trenary. “All of our teams include tournament-caliber players alongside teammates that just want to play for the fun of the game.”

Founded in 2021, Senior Softball Beaufort County is an independent association whose purpose is to provide adjunctive services and support to the league host, Beaufort County Parks and Recreation, with the goal of expanding the presence of senior softball, in a fun, safe and competitive environment, in the county.

Beaufort County Parks and Recreation registration is scheduled to start in early February but interested players can join the SSB anytime through their website. 

Introductory practices for new players are tentatively scheduled for: 3-5 p.m. Feb. 8 (location to be determined); 3-5 p.m. Feb. 15 (location to be determined); and 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Feb. 18 at Barker Field on Hilton Head Island.

The eight-week regular season starts in March with playoffs ending in late May, depending on weather. 

Every Wednesday, each team plays two games (at 4 and 5:15 p.m.) at M.C. Riley fields in Bluffton or Barker Field on Hilton Head.
