Talleyville Girls Softball League

Talleyville Softball History

History

The Talleyville Girls Softball League was founded as a neighborhood league in 1969 by three mothers who recognized the need for an organized after-school program for girls who had the desire to play softball. Games were played after school at Channin Elementary School and were coached solely by women (no men were permitted to be involved). Teams were organized by geographic location with no tryouts or drafting.

After several years of this informal approach, the league developed the organizational structure that still exists today. By 1979, the league was sanctioned by the Amateur Softball Association (A.S.A.).  In 2006, Talleyville became a Pony organization.

The league has grown both in size and reputation. Talleyville sponsors travel teams, which have competed nationally. The recreational league continues to provide opportunities for young girls to learn the sport and cultivate friendships.

In 2008, Talleyville Girls Softball opened up their new home at the former site of the Old Mill Lane School. These four fields have become the cornerstone of the future of softball at Talleyville.

16U 2017 USSSA Sandlot Showdown Champions 10/14-15/2017

The Travellers went 3-0 on Saturday and seeded #1. Sunday saw a buy into the semi-finals and a rematch of a close 2-1 pool play game against the Lady Wildcats. The Travellers won 11-1 behind solid pitching, outstanding defense and an offensive onslaught capped by an over the fence homerun. The Championship game was a roller coaster of emotion. We took an early 3-0 lead, only to trial 6-3 heading into the bottom of the 6th with time expiring. We rallied to tie the game and force ITB. After allowing 1 run to score in the top of the 7th, we again rallied back to force another inning of ITB. The defense held in the top of the 8th and we won a thrilling Championship game 8-7, in walk-off fashion.
