Overview

This is the story of how a bunch of senior athletes – age 75 and up – become involved in a hilarious, and sometimes vicious, battle for supremacy in a Florida slow pitch softball league. Hal Redwine coaches a team called The Geezer All-Stars and they are trying to overcome a longtime nemesis team, The Reprobates. The Reprobates coach and manager, Gary Hawkins, has had a longtime grudge against one of the Geezers players and his main mission in life is to cause him pain and discomfort. Hawkins even resorts to paying star players under the table – including three sluggers who were former pro baseball players. Redwine resorts to some unique game strategy when the two teams meet for the league championship and the fur flies when the strategy infuriates The Reprobate players and manager. There are many humorous moments involving the players and their wives.

Meet the Author

Ken Mink has spent more than five decades as a journalist/author.

A Kentucky native, he retired from active newspaper work in 1998 but continues to serve as a journalist, editing an online magazine. Ken Mink lives in Knoxville, Tn., semi-retired after a 48-year career as a journalist. He is editor of the travel magazine, The Travelling Adventurer (www.travellingadventurer.com), and writes freelance articles for newspapers and magazines. Other daily newspapers he worked for include the Lexington, Ky., Herald-Leader, the Dayton, Ohio, Daily News, the Bristol, Va., Herald-Courier, Kingsport, Tn., Times-News, Harrisonburg, Va., Daily News-Record and the Hopkinsville, Ky., New Era.

He is the author of several books, including So, You Want Your Kid to be a Sports Superstar, Teen Gunslinger, A Bloody Trail, Nightmare on Black Mountain, Serpent on the Cross, The Mailman Murders, The Cola Conspiracy, Geezer Wars and Hoops Dreamer: The Ken Mink Story.


But he is perhaps best known as the World’s Oldest College Basketball Player. He was unjustly expelled from college in 1956 while playing on his college team at Lees Junior College, Jackson, Ky. After retiring in 2007 he got the urge to try to return to college basketball at age 73 to finish his career. Incredibly, he made the team at Roane State College, Harriman, Tn., and went on to play in seven games and scored in three, setting several world records. He was featured on numerous national TV shows and was highlighted in hundreds of newspapers and magazines and Ripley‘s Believe It Or Not. He has signed with a Hollywood producer to do a movie based on his life.
