07-28-06 - Some of the best softball teams in this part of the country are competing in Ardmore July 28th through the 30th to qualify for a National Tournament that will be in Dallas in August.
The teams come from all over Oklahoma and neighboring states to compete in the tournament, but what makes them unique is their age. All of the players are from age 50 and up. They are able to compete in three different age groups that go up to age 75.
Many of the players, who compete this year, were once professional baseball players when they were younger.
The tournament is taking place at the Regional Park in Ardmore. This is the first time the city of Ardmore has hosted one of these regional qualifying tournaments.
