Quote of the week: "I've never been around such an uplifting kid."  Xander Bogaerts, Boston Red Sox.......Ari Schutz was an avid 5 year old Red Sox fan who passed away July 21, 2017 as a result of complications from a heart transplant.  Red Sox players Xander Bogaerts and Christian Vasquez visited Ari regularly at his home and in the hospital. There is a short TV documentary on Ari and his love for the "Sox" that is well worth watching.

Collier County Senior Softball was formed in 1991 by Jim Kirby and Max Hurt. In the early days, guys would show up at Veterans Park to play the game they loved and thus the league was formed.

CCSS now has over 250 members and three divisions, AAA, Major, and  Recreational division for the 2017 season. Over 150 games were played at North Collier Park (Jan-March) including playoffs and championship games for the AAA and Major divisions. At the league picnic March 28th, Team Gargner (AAA) and Team Cline (Major) were officially crowned champions of their respective divisions. For the summer and fall, pick-up games are played every Tuesday and Thursday beginning at 8:30am at Veterans or North Collier Park.
