A message from SSIL President Nilo Menendez: Batting practice for
tournament players will be held for 2 weeks on Tuesday and Thursday at
Veterans Park. also, we will be collecting $$ for the SSIL "end of the

A message from Bill Saywers: "I would like to thank all the SSIL players
for this second half season. The competition was great and I enjoyed the
welcome atmosphere, as Amanda and I return to Williamsburg Virginia
(21-Apr) we carry many favorable memories, and looking forward to next
season when to ump says "take the field", again thanks, Bill & Amanda
Sawyers". Bill speaking as a SSIL rep and editor of the website I/we
consider it an honor to have such a talented player and pleasant couple
as you and Amanda, looking foward to your return next season.
The SSIL is having their annual end of the year party. It will be held
at Masaryktown social hall April 29th, 2016. The food though not
decided yet will be catered by Pizza Villa. The cost will be $15.00 per
person or $25.00 per couple. Contact any board member via this site,
board member phone numbers are in "League Info page.
The new Board of Directors today (4-7-16) approved the new amended rules
#18 & #23 of the SSIL playing rules to comply with the current NSA
directive, which will keep us current as to their insurance policy. The
amended SSIL playing rules are now listed.

A message from Mark Dewar: "I just spoke to Paul Perrault, his EKG
went well, however he just lost his dad at 97 years old". Your SSIL
brothers are happy about your results, but sad about your dad. Age has
nothing to do with passing, the loss of a loved one is tough regardless
of how old they were.
The 2015-2016 SSIL Champs are pictured in "Pictures".
See "SSIL Community News Items" for final SSIL stats
leaders. UPDATE: Sorry Woody I kept you on the HR leader board as
long as I could, it was then brought to my attention that I goofed! Ron
Valure had 7 HRs, as an old Brooklyn Dodger fan would say "wait "til
Congratulations to Karma as SSIL League Champions, their victory today
and Elks Lodge's loss gave Karma the title. Congratulations also goes
out to the two teams (Dr Higgin/Dr Chaney and Pizza Villa) that made
these last few games exciting right up to the last game today. See
"League Info" for the new Board.
At 12:06 PM today (03/31/16) the new Board became effective as the
current season ended at that time. Good luck to the new Board and many
thanks to the outgoing Board.
Congratulations to Pizza Villa and Dr Higgins/Dr Chaney, both teams
played spoiler and beat the first place teams. Pizza Villa beat Elks
Lodge & Dr Higgin/Dr Chaney beat Karma. Right up until the last
scheduled game there is something to play for. It boils down to Thursday
(03/31) to determine the finish. a Karma victory and Elks Lodge loss
would give the League Championship to Karma, should Karma lose and Elks
Lodge win it would create a best of three League Championship. Should
both first place teams win then one game will be played between both
teams (Karma & Elks Lodge).
Another outstanding outfield catch, Mark Stone is being sued by Mike
Labriola for robbing him of at least a triple. Mark made the catch with
his back to the infield and backhanded. Jeff Gerbino forced a runner at
second from his knees from his position shortstop, it seems like an
everyday occurrence here at the SSIL.
I just checked (8:29 PM) the second half season records for each team,
the win-loss records are correct going into Thursday's game. Anyone can
check the win/loss by counting the asterisks on the schedule page,
asterisk denotes "win".
Election results will be posted tomorrow (03/25). UPDATE at 10:08 PM
(03/24) election results: President elect is Nilo Menendez, for 1st Vice
President elect Hector Ortiz, for 2nd Vice President elect Larry Dodson and for
Secretary Elect Dan Castillo. Their term becomes effective immediately
at the conclusion of the last play of all team playing activity.
Congratulations to the 2016/17 Board Members and many thanks to the
present Board for doing an outstanding job this past season.
Today there were two great games, the so called bottom teams almost
became spoilers. Dr Higgins/Dr Chaney lost to first place Karma by 2
runs and it took 6 runs in the bottom of the 8th inning for first place
Elks Lodge to beat Pizza Villa by 1 run.
You know those bat warmers that hang on the fence at the park? They're
very effective especially with the Composite bats. Cindy Labriola will
make them up complete for $10.00. They also hold up to three bats. See
Cindy at the park on Tuesdays or Thursdays or call her.
