Citrus Park 50+ Softball
Field 2 closed for maintenance until late October
Men's & women's pre-season fall ball November 1st
Men's rating/re-ratings start
The men's league has started informal practice sessions on diamond 1 that will be held every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9:30 a.m. until the start of pre-season. You do NOT need to have registered for softball to join these practices.
Ratings/re-ratings sessions for men’s softball will begin on Monday, November 8th. Sessions will be on Monday and Wednesday, 30 minutes after the last pre-season game, and on Friday at 11:00 a.m. As many as three ratings sessions will be held each week, if necessary, until the cut off for team selection (December 10th). Ratings will be done on diamond 1.
Sign up sheets for each day of the first week of ratings sessions have been posted on the field 1 bulletin board. If you haven’t already registered and paid the $40 registration fee, you must do so in order to be rated. The registrar will be at each ratings session for sign ups.
If you’re not sure if you need to be rated/re-rated. From the C.P. Softball Men’s Player Placement regulations:
1. Players may be rated for the following reasons:
a. New to the league
b. Re-rate due to injury or illness
c. Re-rate due to a season or more of inactivity
Softball field 2 will be closed until later in October due to maintenance activities.
Field 1 is open and available for practice although there may be times when we're doing maintenance. There is one bucket each of men’s and women’s balls, and batting tees, in a storage chest in back of the Tiki Hut. IF YOU TAKE ANY OF THIS EQUIPMENT PLEASE RETURN IT.
Please note that both outfields are being watered daily. Sprinklers come on starting at 4:00 p.m.
Men's pre-season fall ball is scheduled to begin on Monday, November 1st, first game start time TBD. Games will be played on diamond 1 on Monday and Wednesday. Sign ups will be posted on or about October 22nd. The initial set of teams will be put together on Friday, October 29.
From Aggie Frye, Women's League President Elect -
Well ladies, we are into October already and November is just around the corner. Our pre-season will be played on diamond 2 on Monday and Wednesday. We will start on November 1 at 9:00am. Just some warm ups and ball throwing to loosen up. The time can be adjusted once we start. Our regular season will alternate between the diamonds on Mon. and Wed. The scheduled start date for the season will be determined when the League Board meets in November. Looking forward to returning and seeing you all again.
Need volunteers to help with a few projects in October (weeding infields, adding new sprinkler heads, etc.). If you're in the park and can help the league, email Jim Beall at [email protected] with your contact information (phone, email, whether you text, etc) and availability.

Two years in the making, the 2021 Good Neighbor Games (GNG) were held from August 10 – 13 in South Bend, Indiana. Although the weather didn’t cooperate and we didn’t get as much softball in as we wanted, a great time was had by everyone! Thanks to committee members Connie Soto, Jerry Hopkins, Larry Dauffenbach, Sandra Hively, Mark & Denise Markovich and Bob & Joyce Sult, and to everyone who helped with teams and schedules and the setup and working at the Meet and Greet.
