When he was only 17, Wayne Kopp of Bradenton had a dream of playing softball in his senior years. And he’s living the dream, thanks to 92-year-old Lloyd Grantham. Lloyd created the Bradenton Senior Softball League 33 years ago. The league is open to anyone, and there are several players in their 80s, along with several women in the league. They are the Senior Softball Superstars of the Suncoast – It is literally Bradenton’s Field of Dreams!
Want to play? More information is available on their webpage, BradentonSeniorSoftball.com.

Great advertisement for a special league. Hope to join you for 2022
Great promo for the league. I was thinking about something different when I was 17.
This is such a special and fitting tribute to the best group of guys I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. Such a wonderful story.
I only want to know how Wayne can remember, at his current age anything from his teen years??
