Current News

Last evening we celebrated SSIL end of the year party. The Board did a very good job, the food was excellent, catered by Pizza Villa. The music was good. President Mike Labriola held a moment of silence for Lou Hernandez, his daughter Lisa was present to receive his Hall of Fame plaque. Other awards were given, but the significant Humanitarian/Art Nemeth award went to Mike Labriola, for outstanding work above and beyond his voluntary duties.

Thursday (4/30) there will be practice for the travel team and I'm sure others who want to practice.

I am changing the Stats back to season stats, that will include players who had to leave their team for one reason or another. 

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.
You can now Google or Yahoo onto the SSIL website, just type in "ssilsoftball.com" in the search box and look for Spring Hill Senior Softball. A domain name was established also, it's ssil-softball.

Click "LEAGUE INFO" to find Officer Phone Numbers, Player Application, Waiver Forms, Team Lineup Cards, etc.

SSIL Community News Items...

The breakfast stand is open every morning. Pete is there to serve great breakfast and lunch at very reasonable prices. The hot coffee and hot chocolate on the cool mornings are a big help.

All players should read the League's Rules and By Laws every year for new changes to the rules.

     - Managers need to provide them a copy of their team schedule or call these players when games are to be played.

     - Managers will also be responsible to contact each of these players if we have a cancelled game.

All Players are responsible to contact their manager if they:-will miss a game.
    - Will be late to a game.

I joined the coaches club at Sports Authority. See me for discounts for any sports items that you may need. The discounts range from 5% off to 10 and 20 % discounts. I will have the discount sheets with me at the games.

Health and Welfare...

Paul Tomasello was operated on yesterday (2/12) for a kidney problem. Terry, Paul's wife called and said the surgery went well and Paul will stay one night. The Surgery was performed at Tampa General Hospital.

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...

TB Financial Group, (The Villages, Fl) 70 Major Plus Softball Team traveled to Auburndale Fl on April 10-12 to participate in the SSUSA's 2015 Speing Nationals Championships. The team went 5-1, after losing the first game, our defence carried us throughout the tournament. We went on to win 5 in a row.
TB Financial Group received an invitation to attend the 2016 Tournament of Championship (TOC). Only teams that win a National Championship or World Championship are invited to the TOC. The SSIL own Tommy Giles was named to the All Tournament Team. Tommy Giles batted .778 and ex SSIL player Carter Honkonen batted .667.

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
