SLO County’s extra-inning aces

Competitive baseball doesn’t have to end with high school or college, as members of the Central Coast Mens Adult Baseball league can attest.

For some 200 games a year, players who range in age from 18 to “too old to play” turn out to compete at SLO Stadium at Sinsheimer Park and Cuesta College in San Luis Obispo.

At Sunday’s league championship game at Cuesta College, the Bulls beat the Brew Crew, 5 to 1, with Dave Faller as the winning pitcher.

The league, which was founded in 1993, has nine teams from around San Luis Obispo County.

Their seasons run from March to May and June to October, with informal pick-up games during the off months.

Each team averages about 15 players, and teams also participate in adult league tournaments around the country.

Oh, and another cool note? They use wood bats. For more information, visit www.slobaseball.com.
