AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) -

In 2018, men fifty and over are ditching AARP and picking up a bat. 

"Its a good time, you're out here with your friends and we have a lot of guys come out each year and so the league continues to grow and its fun to be out here and realize you can still compete again with guys that are your age or the same age group.", said Shawn Clifton, the league's board secretary. 

Some of the players, like Steve Zybach drive more than two hours each week just for the fun and fellowship.

"In my opinion, if you go home from work and you sit down you're done,", said Zybach. "You're going to be asleep in an hour, so you come out here get a little, exercise, have a little fellowship, and it's just a great activity."

For a lot of guys this league is a lot like a man cave, a place for them to get away from the stress of everyday life.

"It gives us a release and it's fun to be around guys, we need that time to spend with them,",said Clifton."Competing is fun no matter what it is ,especially if you're having a good time if you're not having a good time, then not so much."

At the end of the day there's one rule that really matters in this league and that's just to simply have fun . 

"We're friends before we get on the field, we're competitors on the field, and we're friends when we leave and that's the best way to play softball because nobody gets paid out here it's all fun.", said Zybach. 

The league is already full this year but if you want to make sure you're apart of this growing league visit their website at www.amarilloseniorsoftball.com
