3/30/2020 Update: We are suspended through April 30
Per State Guidelines, and all Carlsbad fields are closed through April 30

League Update on Corona Virus

City Of Carlsbad has closed ALL FIELDS for all activities


Message from LC35AC president

I am sure to the surprise of no one, there will be no LC35 softball for the next two weeks. The health and safety of ALL our members, our families, and our community is far more important to us than Sunday Softball. We continue to work closely with the City of Carlsbad and will be following their guidelines in addition to those issued by the SD County Dept of Health Services and CDC.


Per current guidelines, we will re-evaluate the situation on April 1st and make another decision at that time. Again, it may be some time before we are back on the fields, but all this will eventually pass and we will start playing again as soon as it is safe to do so.

Stay safe everyone,
Karl Burk
President LC35AC

Rachel Wright, the La Costa Canyon High School softball coach, was thrown a curve ball the day after Easter. A brain tumor rocked her world and knocked her down, but not out. See the article by LC35 member, sportswriter and author Jay Paris about Rachel and how LC35 reached out to her to help.  If you want to donate to help Rachel, Encinitas’ St. Mark Lutheran Church is accepting contributions at

Long time LC35 member Alan Fischer has written a powerful and impactful story of his combat experiences as an A6 Intruder pilot in Vietnam. “The Death Mist” addresses trust, faith, teamwork, and dedication. Like Pat and Tommy’s books, it can also be bought on Amazon.

Longtime LC35 members Pat Steele and Tom Stern have each written a book.  Pat’s novel, Scorpion Bay is an action-adventure fiction novel about struggle, turmoil, drug addiction, redemption, and success that is partly set in Mexico.   Tom’s book, Just Lucky I Guess, is a series of short story adventures based on his life.  Both are available on Amazon.

LC35 member Rob Holzman was recently honored as “Volunteer of the Year” by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad!

He was presented the award at the North County Philanthropy Council’s annual luncheon. Way to go Rob!
