The Denver Over 60 Baseball league is underway. This year we have seven teams competing in a shortened season. We play competitive baseball each Thursday July 9th until August 27th. This years schedule is just seven games and will be followed by a final week in which the teams are seeded to determine opponents. Rules are the same as baseball anywhere with a few special adjustments unique to our age group. Such as no stealing of bases or advancing on the base paths when the ball gets away from the catcher. Also a teams line up is made up of the total number of players in the dugout that day. Everyone plays, everyone bats unless by their choice. Players can play a defensive position take a break and then go back in the field. These rule adjustments and a few others make for a fun and competitive game even at our some what advanced age group. Games are spirited, lively and surprisingly competitive. Not too many scouts are in the stands at our games and good seats are usually available.
