- Welcome -
The St. Petersburg Half Century Softball Club is a modified fast-pitch softball club for players ages 49 to 74. The Club plays at Northshore Field, just north of the Vinoy Hotel in Downtown, St. Petersburg, Florida. Our 91st season begins in October, with games every Mon, Wed and Fri at 9:30am & 11:30am. We are always looking for new Full or Part-time players to join our Club.
The Half Century Softball Club has been in existence since 1933 when a group of men met in a corner of the old ballpark where Al Lang Field at Progress Energy Park is now located. Contributing 10 or 15 cents with which they bought balls and bats, those men started what is now a nationally known organization. The Club is now 90 years old and still going strong!
An eight member Board is elected annually. The Board organizes and administrates the softball operation under the auspices of a Constitution, By-Laws and a set of Rules and Responsibilities. Single wall bats and ASA rules are utilized. Dues are assessed to cover the cost of umpires, field maintenance, equipment and uniforms.
