We are saddened that Mike Bernardo had to step down as the new member of the board of Bradenton Senior Softball due to personal reasons. We want to thank him for offering to be on the board. Dave Boyle has agreed to fill the opening left by Mike. We want to welcome Dave and thank him for volunteering. Please thank Dave when you see him at the field.
Thursday American League Announcement
Mike Mancuso has decided to step down as the League Coordinator for the Thursday American League. Mike has worked tirelessly to make this league the success it has achieved over the many years. We want to express our thanks for all his hard work and dedication. Greg Lewandowski has accepted the new position and we hope everyone gives him complete support. We know Greg will do a fine job replacing Mike. Since he will be relinquishing his position as manager in the Thursday American League, we will be looking for his replacement. Anyone interested in being a manager, please call or contact Wayne Kopp. So when you see Mike, thank him for all he did and welcome Greg as he assumes the duties of American League Coordinator.

COVID Policy Update
Weekly Batting Practice being held at Buffalo Creek, starting at 8:30
If it is occupied, we will try to be on the football field directly behind it. If that is taken, we will try to be on one of the Little League fields.
(parking for those fields are accessed through the driveway to the golf course. )
