Clermont County elders excel in senior softball

The Anderson Senior Softball League is very important to its more than 80 competitors who have played on Mondays throughout the summer. The games take place at Riverside Park just south of Newtown.

Robert Kuebler is the oldest player in the league. The 82-year old Mount Carmel resident has been a member of the senior league since 1989.

“I hadn’t played softball in 33 years, but I wanted to get back into it because I love playing ball and its a fun thing and you meet a lot of nice people,” said Kuebler who is a retired equipment operator for Burns-Conway Construction Co.

He didn’t see action this summer because he had broken his back last year and had surgery.
