HOW IT ALL BEGAN....

It all started in 1977 with pick-up teams for fun.

1977 - Players at the Old Whipple Field chose teams and play. No tournaments were played.

 

1980 - Primarily players were age 60+. They played at Hartke Park. Joe Jenecaro set up the original “Cashman Field” tournament, which included four teams from Hawaii.

 

1980’s - Paradise Park: Rocky Mann planned two tournaments. These tournaments were played at a five-diamond complex on South Las Vegas Boulevard. The teams practiced on Tuesday and Thursday at Paradise Park.

 

The Jenecaro/Mann groups merged in the mid-80 and played at Paradise Park. They moved to Sunset Park, then to Cheyenne Park.

 

About 1991 this organized club moved to the present Lorenzi Park fields in Las Vegas. The Las Vegas Senior Silver Rebels became the name of the club at that time.

 

The Las Vegas Senior Softball Association, Inc. (LVSSA) was formed on February 17, 2000.

"Members can take part in batting practice on Mondays and play games on Tuesday and Thursday". Women’s teams joined the association in 2002, and, like the men, became quite competitive in tournaments. Currently there are over 300 active senior men and women members.

LVSSA is incorporated in the state of Nevada as a nonprofit corporation. It has been granted a tax exemption by the Internal Revenue Service under section 501 (c) (4) of the Internal Revenue Code.
