At Herb Chambers Honda of Seekonk, we love being involved in our community, and we love the beautiful weather that seems to finally be here. How do we combine these two? By sponsoring our awesome senior softball team, of course! The team, which has been in existence since 1982, plays in the Rhode Island Senior Softball League Division IV. We’ve had the pleasure of sponsoring them since 2013 too!
So – what’s this team all about?
Team Herb Chambers Honda Seekonk’s division is for players age 60 and up, but the league itself is for 50 and up, so players range in age from their late fifties (the young’uns) to early eighties. The players all wear “J-8” on the sleeve of their jerseys in honor of the team founder, Jed Schifino, who played well into his eighties.
The players themselves have lots to say about their team. “Really, it’s the competition that makes it fun,” said Ray Brum, who plays infield and outfield positions. Outfielder Jim L’Heureux agreed: “Here, we get to play the game we’ve always played.” Dennis Paquette has been on the team for over fifteen years and said he wouldn’t miss it for the world.
All in all, we are extremely proud to have been sponsoring this amazing team who just love to get out there and play the game. Go Team Herb Chambers Honda Seekonk!
