Doylestown Over 35 Softball League


Modified-pitch softball for men thirty-five years of age or older. All games are played at Maennerchor Field on Cold Spring-Creamery Road, just outside Doylestown, PA. Games are played strictly on Wednesday nights at 6:30, 8:00, and 9:30; in case of rain-outs, the rained-out games are added for as many Wednesdays as are necessary at the end of the season.

The goals of our League are: (a) play good, competitive softball, (b) provide Wednesday night fellowship among all teams, families, and fans, and (c) drink as much beer as possible ... not necessarily in that order.

Another Great Night Of Softball

Week 9 of the 2016 season is in the books. While it was a bit steamy last night (July 6), the games, the banter among players, and the refreshments made for a perfect summer night. Nine weeks without a rain-out has to be some kind of league record. This will need to be confirmed by Bazzi Bat's Tommy Hansen A.K.A. "League Historian".

Wednesday June 8 Downpour Field Still Playable

Butch Cutsler took some pictures of the field after the rainstorm on Wednesday June 8 which could have given us our first rain out if it had not been for Mike Gresko and his determination to get the game in. (Could not get pictures to post).

It was Gresko's call to Jim Helmstetter at 1:00PM that got things rolling.  Mike was at the field and he thought that we might be able to play if we were to do some water removal. 

From there Mike, Don Dennis, Butch,Tim Crandall, and Jim Helmstetter went to work and produced the field we played on last Wednesday June 8. 

 Great work guys! See you at the field!!

Anthony Landscapes Cops 2012 Title in Slugfest

Anthony Landscapes defeated Dominick's Side Door Pub, 17-3, to wrap up a successful 2012 season.  This represents the first time in recent memory that the #1 and #2 Seeds did not figure in the championship game, both (Creekside/Rice's Market and National Mortgage, respectively) having been knocked off earlier in the evening.

In the 6:30 PM game, Anthony prevailed over National, 17-7; later on, Creekside was upset by Dominick's, 19-17, in a wild affair that saw Dominick's score fifteen runs in the top of the seventh and then hold off Creekside's furious last-inning charge.

The final, which didn't get started until after 10:00 PM, was almost an afterthought, with Anthony's running all over Dominick's, 17-3.
