Seniors Have Some Swing Batter Batter Wii Fun
The Riderwood retirement community in Silver Spring, Maryland is following in the footsteps of the Sedgebrook retirement home in Chicago, Illinois by hosting Wii game tournaments. A feel good story from Kotaku explained how the residents at Riderwood had a Wii Home Run Derby last week in honor of Barry Bonds record-breaking home run. They even had Doris Terry, a pitcher from the 1940's All-American Girls Baseball League participate in the Derby. Considering 47 percent of all casual game players are 50 or older, and nearly 20 percent are 60 or older, the Wii seems like a fun way for seniors to get some exercise, stimulate their minds, and have a jolly good ol' time!
