Whose Your Daddy, one of four Pasadena teams playing under the name Crown Valley, fielded a team whose age ranged from the early 50’s to as old as 82. To get to the finals, Whose Your Daddy beat another Diamond Bar team, the Classics, 12 to 4, in the semifinal game.
The league is open to all, with emphasis on having fun. The range of skill is enormous, but many players have picked the game back up after not playing for 20, 30, or even 40 years. Pasadena is blessed with some of the best weather in the nation, and many games are played with the picturesque San Gabriel Mountains in the background.
Softball includes a certain amount of running, and like all outdoor sports, can present difficulties as seniors. Through the season all the teams dealt with injuries, some minor, some not so much.
Batting practice and a pick up game are played every Monday at Farnsworth Park in Altadena, starting 8:00 am and every Thursday during the winter months at Arcadia County Park off Santa Anita. The practice is open to everyone.
