Rochester MN Senior Softball League
Rochester MN Senior Softball (RMSS) is a spring/summer league open to
men and women players. Men must be at least 50 years old during
the playing season. Women players must be at least 40 years old during
the playing season. Our focus is on fun, fitness and fellowship. Games
are played on Monday and Wednesday mornings at McQuillan
fields in southeast Rochester, behind Longfellow school on Marion
Road. Normal start time is at 9:30 AM with optional batting practice at
8:30 AM. Due to weather or field availability start times are
occasionally changed slightly.
The season is separated into sessions. Players register as individuals, then are drafted and
assigned to teams
for each session. This minimizes a single team dominating
other teams and accounts for player availability based upon new players,
injuries, vacations, and work responsibilities. It also promotes
fellowship as the team rosters change each session. The dates for each
session are included on the General Calendar (under the More tab) and
reflected in the Games Schedule page. The Events/News page records our mid-season picnics and other celebrations in addition to general news items.
The 2019 fee will be $48 with an early bird rate of $40. The fee covers the 40 scheduled games plus picnics. The Registration and Waiver page has the early bird sign up dates/locations and the Registration and Waiver form. You may print the form on your printer and bring it filled out. Please bring proof of age.
Remember, women must be at least 40 by calendar year end. Men must be at least 50 by calendar year end.
SPECIAL NOTE: If you want to join the league after the season starts, contact a RMSS Board member or a Team Manager. The Board members and team manager information is available on the Contact Us page. A per game fee or a reduced season fee, based upon your start to play date is offered.
There are picnics at the end of each scheduled session. 2018 season picnics are scheduled for 6/6, 7/11, 8/15 and 9/26. They are FREE to RMSS players and great opportunities for fun and fellowship!!
