50th Anniversary Celebration

This coming season will mark the 50th anniversary of the Talleyville Girls Softball League. 
Event planning to celebrate this milestone has already begun. A 50th Celebration Committee is currently forming and will begin meeting this month. Our current board members are busy working on the 2019 season and we are in dire need of additional volunteers for the 50th Celebration Committee. We are proud to say that the TGSL has grown rapidly and now accommodates over 550 girls. The responsibilities of our board increase every year and the approximate 20 members work extremely hard to make this league a success. If you have an interest in helping with the 2019 season please attend our next meeting scheduled for October 4th at Del-Vets.  You do not need to sit on the board or head a committee. We could simply use your help!

Talleyville Softball

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.

Objectives

·         To teach sportsmanship within the context of a competitive environment

2018 16U Talleyville Travellers WINS USSSA Father's Day Classic 6/16/18 - 6/17/18

 

The Talleyville Travellers 16U won the Father's Day Classic in Lansdale, PA this past weekend June 16th and 17th. The Travellers finished pool play 3-0, with wins of 11-0, 10-0, and 13-1, seeding 2nd. Game 1, ended early with the Travellers pounding the bats and a solid pitching performance, 10-0. Game 2 had the Travellers pitted against a tough Assasins team, in a Semi-Final showdown. The Travellers let up 3 unearned runs in the first, but immediately answered with 4 runs in the bottom to take the lead.  The remainder of the game was filling with solid pitching and defense, with the Travellers squeezing an insurance run across and closing the game out, 5-3.  The Travellers started slowly in the Final, with the game knotted at 1-1 through 4. Terrific play from the outfield allowed time for the bats to get going and the Travellers pulled away for an 8-2 victory.  Solid pitching again all weekend and a relentless offensive attack brought home back-to-back tournament wins.  We are extremely proud of the fight of these girls playing short again. #9strong.  Thanks for a great weekend and representing the league.

The Talleyville Travellers 16U won the School’s Out Celebration in Quakertown, PA this past weekend June 2nd and 3rd. The Travellers finished pool play 2-1, as a result of a shortened game due to rain with a rally mounting. The loss inspired the team for Sunday bracket play that wanted a shot at redemption. Game 1, ended early with the Travellers finding the bats and solid pitching performance, 9-0. Game 2 had the Travellers pitted against the top seed from Saturday, in a Semi-Final showdown. The Travellers came out the gate on fire, putting 5 runs on the board in the top of the 1st and dominated offensively and defensively, capped with a Grand Slam - resulting in a 11-0 win. Game 3, had the Travellers up against a solid Force team in the Finals. The Travellers grinded a few runs out the first 3 innings for a 2-0 lead and broke it open with a 3-run home run in the 4th. Solid pitching and defense never allowed the Force to get anything going, allowing the Travellers win 9-0. We are extremely proud of the fight of the girls, playing down on Sunday - and dominating with 9 players. Thanks for a great weekend and representing the league.
