Cactus League Rosters, Schedule for “Majors”

Rosters and a schedule for the “Major” Division have been posted on the PSS website.  Click here to view:  Major-Cactus-Schedule

Weather permitting, we intend to begin Cactus play on March 6 in order to accommodate an April 3 draft and April 17 Summer season start.  The forecast through March 6 is not promising, but we will be ready with teams and scheduled games when (not “if”) the weather breaks. 

You will note that managers have not been designated for Cactus.  Teams should be able to govern themselves, bearing in mind that new players should be given ample opportunity to showcase their skills.  Similarly, returning players who might wish to play new positions should also be given a chance to do so.

As noted previously, Cactus League games are intended to (1) ensure that all players are assigned to the division appropriate for their skill level and competitive preference, and (2) help managers evaluate players in preparation for the Summer League drafts.  Competitive balance in Cactus games is not a primary consideration and (3) Cactus games may also serve to test possible changes to playing rules or game formats.

Only fully registered and paid players will be permitted to take the field for Cactus games.  If you have not registered and/or paid, please be advised that the registration fee will rise to $90, from $70, after March 6.  For registration information, click here: 2023 PSS Registration or contact Mark Adams (Membership board member) at the field or email him at nacc4@hotmail.com.

(Players new to PSS are required to register, but will be accorded the customary “free” three-game tryout.)

Here’s hoping we get a break in the weather so that we can finally get going.

 

 

2023 Summer Season

The 2023 Summer Season is scheduled to begin on April 17th, 2023 for all divisions.   The Major League draft will be held on Monday, April 3rd,  AAA draft will be held on Thursday, April 6th, and the AA draft will be held on April 10th.  

 

2023 Cactus League

Cactus League games are scheduled to begin on Monday, March 6, 2023.  Teams and the first week’s games will be announced by an email ‘blast’ sent on or near February 27th.  

 

2023 Softball Season

Prescott Senior Softball will return to the fields at Pioneer Park on Monday, January 23. Weather permitting, there will be batting practice and/or pickup games from about 10 AM every Monday and Thursday. Pease do not go on the fields if the frost on the green areas has not fully thawed. If in doubt, check with a member of our Field Crew.

We expect Cactus League games to begin no later than March 6, with the regular summer season to follow on or about April 17.

Players are required to register, sign our waiver and pay. Please CLICK HERE for our “Player Info” page. Then download the “2023 Registration and Waiver” form and follow the instructions thereon.

We look forward to seeing you all at Pioneer Park beginning Monday, Jan 23.

Bob Mucha, Brian Redmon, Tom Payson and Joe Zubek

This year’s golf outing at Antelope Hills Golf Course had 30 participants.  This is down from previous years, and I would appreciate any input or ideas as to how we can increase the participation.  We changed the venue from StoneRidge (since many found it too challenging) to Antelope Hills, without the anticipated increase in participants.  If you have any ideas for next year’s outing, please email Sharon Carlin at xxxx@aol.com. 
 
Thanks to all who participated.

Please be advised that CLM Earthmovers, LLC in conjunction with Yavapai County, will be performing roadwork on the Pioneer Parkway and Commerce Drive intersection. Construction will begin July 18, 2022, continuing through February 2023.

Road construction will consist of building a multi-lane roundabout on Pioneer Parkway at Commerce Drive. Work will include importing materials to raise and level the intersection, milling and paving, drainage improvements, lighting improvements, curb and sidewalk installation, and miscellaneous landscaping.

During critical periods of construction, Commerce Drive will be closed to through traffic and re-opened as soon as possible. During closures, motorists will need to utilize alternate routes to access pioneer park and addresses along Commerce Dr. One lane of traffic in each direction will remain open at all times on Pioneer Parkway; however, motorists will encounter lane restrictions, lane diversions, reduced speeds, and flagging operations throughout the work zone. Motorists should expect minor delays and allow extra time to get through the construction area. Please follow all traffic control devices when traveling through the work zone.

For additional information please contact Yavapai County Public Works at 928-771-3183
