Nov 7th is the next dinner, lets show support and have a large turn out. Give me a head count so I can give the Elks Lodge time to set up tables for the SSIL players and guests. I've eaten there and believe me the tomato sauce is made from scratch. All are welcome! The Elks Lodge is located at 13383 County line Road less than a 1/4 mile west of the Suncoast Parkway.

Randy Hill has a 28 oz. Mikon for sale for $130, the bat is in excellent condition. Randy is playinf in the WHACS. 


See " A Word from the President" below!  


A Word from the President:

When a team needs a player and they already have ten players, the Board member who must give the team a replacement will verify the addition by first speaking to the tenth team rostered player to verify the rostered players ability to play.

The managers will have to be diligent with giving the scorekeeper the lineup 10 to 15 minutes before game time so there won't be a delay in the start of the game. The umpire will be asked not to allow a team to take the field until the lineup is completed. 

A Word from the Editor...

I just installed a copy of the Vets field permit in "LeagueInfo" page, should the need to prove that the field is asigned to the SSIL ever comes up.  

In the "LeagueInfo" page you will see a comments box, thanks to Steve King it can now be used. If you would like to make a comment fill out the appropriate lines and make your comment. The comments will be sent to my (Sal Ficarra-editor) e-mail address. All messages will be sent to the President or if he's not available to the next Board member available.

Finally someone is using the comment box!

SSIL is Ten Years Old !

The Senior Softball Invitational League (SSIL) is starting it's tenth season. This league boasts of signing the best 50+ softball players in Hernando County (and some from Pasco and Citrus) playing good/crisp competitive softball in the Spring Hill area.

The SSIL website is also the best softball website in Spring Hill. Our goal is to keep the players (and their families) well informed with notices, a 2-week schedule, etc. We are now the only Spring Hill website where anyone (players and their families) can follow the season thru league standings, individual game box scores, and complete year-to-date player stats. In addition, Current By-Laws, game Rules and minutes of every League, are available to be read and even printed thru-out the year.

Check the "COMMAND buttons" on the top; use them to navigate to the various SSIL sections. Since games are played Tue/Thu; my goal is to publish every Friday (worse case maybe Sat).

This website is for those who follow the SSIL... please enjoy it and comment on things you like and dislike. As in previous years I will post by Friday of the week just completed, although most times posting occurs by Thursday evening.

Good luck to all the players, have fun and don't get hurt. This is your site, use it, if only to send recipes or complain about my handling of the site. Sal Ficarra
