The aging baby boomer population who once dominated the diamonds around the USA on a nightly basis in the 80's and 90s have now formed a massive brotherhood of over 50 softball players. Athletes who participate in these half-century leagues play until they are well into their 70's and still bash 300' home runs and score from second on a single through the infield. Many of them are inductees in our Legends Hall of Fame and many others like USSA, ISA, and Heartland.

The Baby Boomers of today are a new breed with 30% of the American population being over 50 years old. In past generations, 50 and 60 something’s were ready for retirement and a rocking chair. Today, these same people are competing in all sorts of sports and by doing so, extending their lives. Our focus is on slow pitch softball, the world’s fastest growing sport for young and old people alike with over 40 million participants in the United States alone which makes it the number one participant sport in the country. Join us as we unfold the stories behind the men and women who are redefining what it means to live and follow their dreams into their extra innings of life.
