Coaches, Players, and Parents

On behalf of the SOSLI District Representatives, I am sad to report that the decision was made to cancel the 2020 SOSLI Spring Softball Season.   

The safety of our young athletes is always our number one priority.  Prior to making this decision, we sought advice from local public health authorities, and government officials.  We cannot ignore how serious the health risks are that the Covid-19 virus poses for all involved.  In addition, without knowing exactly when it will be safe to start our season, it would be nearly impossible to set an appropriate schedule of games.

While we fully understand that playing softball is not an essential act, we know how important it is to our athletes.  Our hope is that over the next few weeks, players and teams will find a safe way to get on a field to practice or play while adhering to state mandates as they come out.

This decision does not mean that players cannot play softball this summer.  We encourage parents and coaches to get players together as soon as state officials say it's safe to do so.  When the ban is lifted, support local parks by playing in tournaments or scrimmage a neighboring team.  Meet friends at your local field and play for FUN.  

I’d like to thank our SOSLI Districts for their ongoing support as we manage our league and make cautious decisions on how to move forward.

We look forward to seeing everyone on the field for Fall Softball later this year.

2019 Mid-season Results

Championship Monday crowned the 9U, 12U, and 14U mid-season champs, twelve days after the start of the tournament. Thanks to all the players, coaches, and parents for your patience throughout the process as Rachel, Anthony, and Jason worked with the teams in scheduling during a very busy month. Thanks to the volunteers at CNE and WT who fought the weather and worked to get fields ready to play.

On the field we continue to see some of the best "competitive rec" softball being played in Southwest Ohio. It amazes me how far along the 8U and 9U have come since introducing the modified coach pitch. I hardly saw the coaches take the field during the 8U championship games. At 9U I could count the walks on one hand, and that makes for such a quicker pace game. Already looking forward to the End of Season tournament, and wish everyone good luck during the regular season.
