Current News

Good spectator games today for the fans. Rocky Sanchez made the play of the day with a bare hand grab and strong throw to just get the runner at first base. Tim Cuyler made a nice play on a grounder up the middle, he fielded the grounder and threw out the runner from short center.

I will start up the leader board at the end of next week.

If the season ended today we'd have a problem, take a look at the standings.
The SSIL welcomes Woody our regular umpire for the season.

Emir Abreu was at the opening day game. He asked to put on the Website the fact that due to back problems, and other physical problems he cannot continue his SSIL playing days. With sadness I report Emir's request, not only is the SSIL losing a great ballplayer, but a better person. I have known Emir many years which date back to before our SSIL days, he is more than a exteammate to me, I think of him as a brother, so in closing I ask you Emir to please honor us with visits to the SSIL games.

Check out below "This Week's Schedule" A new addition "Game Highlights" and "League Leaders".
The Stats are now on the website.

President Mike Labriola started the opener with a moment of silence for Bobby Desmond's mom Mildred.
The fans were treated to two enjoyable games, and the SSIL Board treated all in attendance to pizza from Pizza Villa and soda.

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. 

The SSIL welcomes back an old friend sponsor. The Elks Lodge has agreed to sponsor the SSIL for the 2015/16 season. We look forward to showing our appreciation during and after the season.

The full season schedule, individual team schedules and team balance sheet are posted.

Remember as per our ground rules 1st game home team lines the field and puts the bases out, the 2nd game home team puts equipment away in locker 3 and rakes the bases area, homeplate area and pitchers mound area. 

Lou Cirineo has a Mikon ultra 30 oz 34 inch balanced bat for sale, he's asking $120.00.

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.

A Word from the Editor...

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.

Anyone having trouble with the website roster page open the website in internet explorer.

Travel Teams...

Franklin Brin Financial 70's traveled to Oviedo Softball Complex in Oviedo Fl. to participate in thr FHCASS September Super Slam 60's tournament on September 12-13, 2015. The team went 4-0 in the top bracket of the 70's Division. Our own Tommy Giles batted .818.
Tommy Giles told me his 70's team made plans to go to Dalton Ga., they had made reservations and booked rooms. They then were notified that their fee would be returned and they had to cancel their reservations, because the 16 other teams refused to play against Tommy's 70's. They were the defending Champs of that Tournament.

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
