Local ball club for seniors offers fun, camaraderie and friendly competition


The Huronia Gray Jays SLO-Pitch team is looking for some good men and women.

Coach Dave McLaughlin says the team should appeal to people aged 55 and over who are looking for fun, camaraderie and a little friendly competition.

“The team is giving senior players a chance to keep playing baseball and stay active after their regular playing days are behind them,” McLaughlin said.

“It provides recreational competition and at the same time a social opportunity. Our team emphasizes camaraderie and fun above all else…while doing our best on the pitch.”

McLaughlin said potential players will find a friendly and supportive group of people, who also get together in the offseason for fun activities like card nights and skating.

He added: “We are really becoming a social group.”

The team plays its home games at the Perkinsfield Park Ball Ground with away games in Barrie, Wasaga Beach and Orillia with games also possible in Bracebridge and Huntsville.

“Our season runs from the first Tuesday after the May long weekend and ends the first week of September,” McLaughlin said, noting that games are Tuesday mornings at 9:30 a.m. and practices are Thursdays around 10 a.m. .
