Rochester MN Senior Softball League
Rochester MN Senior Softball (RMSS) is a spring/summer league open to men and women players. Men must be at least 50 years old, and women players must be at least 40 years old during the playing season. Our focus is on fun, fitness and fellowship.
Games are played on Monday and Wednesday mornings at McQuillan fields in southeast Rochester, behind Longfellow school on Marion Road. Normal start time is at 9:30 AM with optional batting practice at 8:30 AM. Start times are occasionally modified slightly, due to weather or field availability.
The season is separated into sessions. Players register as individuals, then are drafted and assigned to teams for each session. This minimizes the chance that a single team dominates the other teams. It also accounts for player availability based upon new players, injuries, vacations, and work responsibilities. It also promotes fellowship as the team rosters change each session. The dates for each session are included on the General Calendar (under the More tab) and reflected in the Games Schedule page. The Events/News page records our mid-season picnics and other celebrations in addition to general news items.
We will have 6-8 teams for the 2022 season. The 2022 season will run from May 2 through Sept 26 with 4 sessions of between 9
and 11 games and a total of 40 games.
Session 1 – May 2 to June 1 - 9 games
Session 2 – June 6 to July 13 - 11 games. Picnic on July 13
Session 3 – July 18 to Aug 17 – 10 games
Session 4 – Aug 22 to Sept 26. – 10 games. Picnic on Sept 26
The 2022 fee will be $48. Players who are 80+ years old during the calendar year pay half price fee of $24. Board members and Managers also pay the half price fee of $24. The fee covers the 40 scheduled games plus picnics. A per session fee of $12 is also available. New players paying for the full year ($48) receive an RMSS baseball cap.
The Registration and Waiver page has the Registration and Waiver form and details on options to submit your form.
SPECIAL NOTE: If you want to join the league after the season starts, contact a RMSS Board member or a Team Manager. The Board members and team manager information is available on the Contact Us page. A per game fee or a reduced season fee, based upon your start date, is offered.
2022 season picnics are scheduled for 7/13 and 9/26. They are FREE to RMSS players and are great opportunities for fun and fellowship!! For more league and team information, click the tabs at the top of this page.
