Play Ball! Charlestown Residents to Compete in Regional Softball Tournament

CATONSVILLE, MD  (June 4, 2013) --  Charlestown retirement community residents will compete tomorrow, June 5,  at Fairfield Athletic and Aquatics Center Field in Laurel, MD, in Erickson Living's  Annual Resident Softball Tournament. The tournament begins at noon. Two teams from the Baltimore area -- Charlestown in Catonsville and Oak Crest in Parkville -- will compete against two teams from the Washington, D.C.,  metro area -- Riderwood in Silver Spring and Greenspring in Springfield, VA. Charlestown residents have been practicing for the tournament on their campus' baseball field. Rumor has it their pitcher has a fastball that might make Baltimore Orioles slugger Chris Davis swing and miss. The residents will play first round contests, followed by championship and runner-up games.  The games will be five innings each.  Fellow residents and employees will be in attendance, cheering these athletes to do their best for the love of the game.  The games are coordinated by the fitness center managers of each retirement community as part of a year-round health and wellness program.
