On Wednesday, September 25th, the Henderson County Senior Softball League sent a team sponsored by Humana to Nettles Park in Clemson, SC to face the Lake Keowee Kings in a pair of games that wrapped up the regular season in the Clayton League. Most of the Henderson County roster was made up of players who will be representing the league in the

65+ age division at the North Carolina Senior Games in Cary. The “Sluggers” maintained their reputation by sweeping the twin bill over the Lake Keowee Kings and extended their record in the Clayton League to 32-2 for the year.  In game one, the Sluggers scored five runs in the top of the first inning and never trailed as they rolled to a 26-20 win over the Kings.  The score is a little misleading because the Sluggers did not bat in the top of the seventh inning as the teams flip-flopped due to the lopsided score.  Game two did not prove to be much different although the Kings did score five runs in the top of the first and took their first and only lead of the day.  The Sluggers matched the five scored by Lake Keowee in the bottom of the frame.  Henderson County scored the maximum of five runs in every inning throughout the second game and pounded out a 30-10 victory.

The Clayton League is scheduled to hold their tournament on Wednesday, October 2nd in Clayton, Georgia.  The schedule for the tournament has not yet been posted so at the moment the Sluggers do not know their opponent(s) or the game times.
On Friday, October 4th, the Henderson County league will have a 65+ and a 70+ team begin play in the North Carolina Senior Games softball tournament. Pool play will end on Saturday, October 5th and the medal round will commence on Sunday, October 6th.  The action will take place at Thomas Brooks Park.

The Henderson County Senior Softball League is always looking for new players ages 50 and older.  Regular league games are played on Monday and Friday mornings at 9:30 on fields 8 and 9 at Jackson Park in Hendersonville. For additional information go to:
