Current News

Today one of the best games was played this year. Dr. Chaney/Dr. Higgins trailing Rookies/Workman 12-0 going into the 5th, scored 12 runs in the top of the 5th to tie the game. It took 9 innings for Dr. Chaney/Dr. Higgins to beat Rookies/Workman 22-21.

Karma won the 1st half, and American Leagion/Carter Taxes, Dr. Chaney/Dr. Higgins and Rookies/Workman were all 13-11.

I would have liked to see what the standings would have looked like, had Pizza Villa not had their key injuries. Again I say great job in picking the teams this year President Mike Labriola and his Board 1st Vice President Juan Rios, 2nd Vice President Larry Dodson, Secretary Danny Castillo and Treasurer Bill Schug.

I will keep the standings as is for one week, then change to standings to 0-0 for the second half. 3rd row down in "Rosters/Stats" I put 1st half won-lost record for each team.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all my SSIL softball brothers and their families.

Field can be used for practice during our two week break.

Al Johnson asked me to post a Rays vs. Angels game info sheet. See "Pictures" for details.

Health and Welfare...

I spoke to John Loos and Ted Frangos today (12/05). John thinks his return will be Feb., but hope it's Jan. John said he was feeling better.

A more serious case is Ted Frangos. Ted had surgery yesterday to repair his torn Achilles. He will be in a boot for about 3 months and out for a year. Ted hopes to be back next year. As a SSIL brother, I extended any kind of help he might need to get around. Ted was very appreciative of our concern.

Travel Teams...

Bucks and Bulls 74's won their tournament 3-1 in the Half Century. The team has two SSIL players Tom Axtell and Randy Hill that play for them.
Bucks and Bulls also won their division in the Winter Nationals in Fort Meyers in November.

SSIL is Nine Years Old !

The Senior Softball Invitational League (SSIL) is starting it's ninth 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
