The Mesquite Geezers senior softball league plans four clinics in September to get ready for the coming fall and winter softball seasons. The clinics are to be held on Wednesdays at 9 a.m. in Hunter Park, E Mesquite Blvd., as follows.
1. Sept. 5 -- Tryouts and scrimmage for new and current players
2. Sept. 12 -- Fundamentals clinic to sharpen player skills.
3. Sept. 19 -- Umpire training and rules review for Geezer volunteer umpires and all players.
4. Sept. 26 -- Conditioning and stretching clinic with Darren Marchant, owner of FIT Physical Therapy.
“We are always looking for new players,” said John “J.D.” Dearing, the new league commissioner. “Players from last year are anxious to begin and new players are really excited to get started. Some players have been off the diamond for up to 20 years, but want to play again.”
Fall league play will begin the week of Oct. 22 and finish the week of Dec. 17. New players can join at any time. Players must be 55 or older by Dec. 31. There is a $25 fee to cover balls, uniform shirts and field equipment. The fee is good for both the fall and winter seasons. The winter season begins in January.
