Adult Sports Report
Senior softball players who turn 50 years old this year, or who are older, may sign up for Gold Country Senior Softball beginning March 5 at Western Gateway Park in Penn Valley.
Sign-ups will continue throughout the month of March, with registration taking place at 9 a.m. each Saturday. The league expects large turnout and encourages those interested to register early.
Plans for the coming year include an expansion to 10 teams for a 36-game schedule. A Saturday morning league, which hits the field once each week, is also available.
At registration, those signing up should be ready to practice some hitting and field because team managers will evaluate new players.
