Current News

President Mike Labriola asked me to post a message, he wants all the player applications in so we can start to pick teams. The season opener is close.

The SSIL welcomes a new sponsor. Karma Cafe and Bar will be one of the sponsors.
The Texas Roadhouse will not be a SSIL sponsor this year.

Today starts the new year for the SSIL, as far as the counter is concerned. While I'm posting the new counter is #1, it finished at 23004 hits for last year ending this morning. That certainly indicates a needed and useful website.

 
A Word from the President:

President Mike Labriola wants applications in. Bring them during practice, even if you can't practice that particular day.

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 the President or if he's not available to the next Board member available.

I will try to report as much as I can during the summer, so visit often.

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.

Health and Welfare...

Manny Perezs' son had surgery, I'll report his progress as I find out more.
Good guy Boomer Oliver ( our occasional ump) had surgery to remove a tumor, I believe in his colon. He's in Oak Hill. Boomer is not allowed visitors for a couple of days.
Mike Miller who umpired for us a couple of times, had a seizure and is unresponsive. His condition appears serious.

From Charlie Fisher:
Sal, I am not certain how this kind of thing will go over with the majority of the guys but in my humble opinion it should not go against the grain of any human being. I am asking you to place on the website a prayer request for this man who is in desperate need of it.
His name is Andrew Maczek, 21 year old who lives in Brisbane, Australia.
He is currently in a hospital and has been diagnosed with Costochondritis. It is an extremely painful inflammation of the joints and cartilage of the ribcage. The pain can be so severe that it mimics the pain of a heart attack. The pain is a constant nine out of ten and because he has been unable to take in full breaths due to the pain, his right lung has partially collapsed. He has not been able to function properly due to this condition. In extreme cases the pain can take up to a year to resolve.
                                                                                                                                        Thank you....Charlie

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
