Buffaloes - 2022 American Division Champion
MTC Blues - 2022 National Division Champion
Fourty-Seven degrees with heavy looking, grey clouds and off and on drizzle…perfect conditions for playing baseball. Right?! NO!!!! But, the brave players of the Buffaloes, Rangers, Blues and Spikes did play and had a fantastic time doing it. Denver Christian was the site of two well played Championship baseball games on September 10, 2022. The field is completely artificial turf and enhanced with new LED lighting, both of which were key in creating favorable field conditions. The rain subsided and the competition went on like it was any normal summer day.
The Buffaloes finally won the American Division Championship with stellar pitching from Hal Friskey and an unrelenting offensive attack that eventually sank a very good Rangers team, 11-1. The Rangers were a much improved team this year and look to be very competitive in 2023.
In the National Division Championship game, the MTC Blues showed why they were the “team to beat” during the regular season by overcoming a tenacious Spikes roster in a 9 inning affair, 9-2. Both Jeff Martinez (Blues) and Bronco VanVors (Spikes) pitched complete games and, but for a few lapses in defense, the score would have been much closer. There were some fantastic defensive plays and, in the end, the Blues pitching and offense were the difference.
Congratulations to the 2022 Colorado Over 50 League Champions!

BASEBALL FIELD LOCATIONS AND DIRECTIONS
The league is looking for a qualified, professional and congenial person to umpire league games. The league uses ArbiterSports to assign games from a small pool of umpires. As a result, the league's umpires have the option to work a lot of games.
If you are interested, contact the league Commissioner at CommissionerOver50@gmail.com.
We're one of the nation's largest independent baseball leagues for both "semi-experienced and experienced" players. We have both men and women players in our league. Men must be at least 47 years of age at game time while women can play if they're at least 21 years age at game time. We schedule nine inning games with a limited stealing rule and liberal substitution to ensure that all players get the maximum benefit and enjoyment while playing baseball in our league.
If you played baseball (not softball) “a long time ago” know that our league has many players just like you. If you played only softball, you can still have fun and be competitive in the games we play. It will take a little more practice to get you up to speed.
• Time Commitment: Minimum you can count on is 3 1/2 hours each week (Arrive early, and play 2:45-3:00 hours each game). Some teams schedule weekly practices, some don’t, so that is up to the team you are selected by. You can go to our website at coloradoover50baseball.org and click on the link for field locations so you can also figure travel time. Games are on Saturday or Sunday at 9, 12:15 and 3:30 PM. Depending on your team, you may have an equal number of games on each day or one may be a majority.
• MONEY: You should expect it to cost between $270-$295 for your league fees (15 game minimum) depending on your team’s roster size. You might also spend up to $100 on uniforms and $50-150 on “lumber”. Lots of help is available in these areas. Of course, you will need your own equipment (gloves, rubber/moulded plastic spikes, helmet etc) so be prepared to spend happy moments and $$ in your local or online sporting goods store.
