Thanks to Ike Johnson I was informed that the Tampa bay Rays honor all Military Veterans to Rays baseball games free of charge.

To find out more go the the Tampa bay Rays website and click on the community tab along the top, then click on Rays honor pass and follow directions. Tickets will be and picked up at Tropicana Field no earlier than 2 hours before games time. It's a great thing to do for deserving Vets.

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.

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
