Selects History

The All-Star Selects Team played from 1997 to 2017 Frank Donnelly recognized that, although the main goal of the Ottawa 60+ Slo-Pitch League is to provide recreational softball for its members, some players (both male and female) wish to play at a more competitive level. The Selects Team chosen was from among League members, to play in exhibition games or tournaments with teams outside of our League. Frank became the first manager of the Selects and was succeeded by Merv Montroy. For many years, the Selects played a friendly tournament against a team from Rochester, N.Y., alternating between Ottawa and Rochester.

Financial support for the Selects Team was outside of the regular League budget, primarily provided by the proceeds of a weekly 50/50 draw.  Fees paid by members to the League are not used for this purpose.
