With a league made up of seasoned veterans, doctors, lawyers, stock brokers, businessmen, police officers, coaches, and educators, the Windy City Senior Basketball League has provided multiple opportunities for players ages 50 through 80, to experience both the fountain of youth and a game they love to play the most: “Basketball.”

Enter “Sweet” Charlie Brown, the leader of the group and one of the league’s founding fathers, who was honored on Monday night, March 9, at Washington Park, for his hard work, dedication, charity, and love he’s provided for the senior community throughout the decades.
