Every Sunday afternoon, the Carlton Drake Memorial Baseball field, located off Main Street in Newfoundland, comes alive with the sound of America’s favorite pastime.
“The purpose of this league is to bring back those days when we were kids playing baseball and talking about Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, and all of our favorite players,” said Steve Szakal, founder of the league.
The first game of the season for the Over 50 Baseball League was played last weekend, and there is still plenty of time to put on those cleats and take to the diamond.
Games are played every Sunday at the Carlton Drake Baseball Field in Newfoundland. Players must be at least 50 years old to play. All interested players can contact Steve Szakal at 570-352-5414.
