About Us

An exciting new 8-team slow-pitch softball league started in 2010. It was an opportunity for Madison, Wisconsin-area men, ages 55 & up, to play organized games on Wednesday mornings against other senior men in a fun, safe environment.

We have grown and expanded to 25 teams as of 2023. We play Wed and Thu mornings.

GMSS promotes team play, good sportsmanship, and participation for all players. (See "GMSS Rules" above for the details.)

It is open to players (and possibly teams) from the Greater Madison area (realistically within a 40 mile radius of Verona) or further, if the player wants to drive that far. Games will be played at Verona Community Park next to Eagles Nest Ice Arena and Veterans Park.  See directions under the Announcements section.

Our Sponsor

Players from GMSS visited the Attic Angels Community on July 9, 2014 and spent time talking all things baseball. The visit provided residents a wonderful opportunity to learn about the league and talk with some of our players about their memories and actvities. Special thanks to all who participated.

The major focus of GMSS is to have fun, but because this is  somewhat competitive, we're looking for players with past experience playing softball.
