We are excited to let you know that the Southern Softpaw League (SSL) is in full preparation for it's 10th Anniversary Season! We are hoping your team will be coming back for this historic, fun-filled season of softball, friends, and memories!!
As you know already, Southern Softpaw League is an all-inclusive, fun, friendly, competitive and charity-minded softball league. The league has the mission of helping metro-Atlanta's four-legged friends, along with providing a sports league with social and friendly environment for softball players, fans, and animal lovers.
In addition, the league provides the best opportunity to recruit, build, and develop your team for the next spring season.
The Southern Softpaw League Executive Board would like to express sincere and heartfelt condolences to the Primetime Elite family, and to all of the family and friends of Phillip Drake.
Phillip was a member of the Southern Softpaw League on the Primetime Elite. His comaraderie, morale, and positive impact within the LGBT softball community will be missed.
Please keep his family and friends in your prayers and thought.

Southside Park had been our home for 8 seasons, but exorbitantly high costs left us no choice but to pursue other, much less expensive fields. By saving well over half the cost of field rentals, we'll be able to commit more funds to our charities and the betterment of our league. We are grateful for the gracious host that Southside was and we won't forget where we started! These fields are only minutes from downtown Atlanta. And although they only offer two fields, they are premium condition. We are pleased to start a new partnership with Nickajack Park!
Dogs allowed! And most importantly, Nickajack Park allows dogs! Unlike Southside Park, Nickajack Park welcomes our doggies! PLEASE exercise common sense and good judgement when bringing your four-legged friend to the park! ALWAYS leash your pooch, do not leave it unattended, and clean up after it! This is incredibly exciting because our partnering animal charities can bring their lovable and adoptable friends for everyone to meet!
PLEASE know that that all Cobb County parks prohibit alcohol and glass containers.
SSL and our partnering charities will return to selling concessions, too! This is offers a great opportunity for our charities to raise more funds for their four-legged friends!
5500 Nickajack Park Road SE Mableton, GA 30126

We will continue our commitment to our charities by collect items for the Annual Pet Food & Supply Drive. Our charities have the biggest need for food (dog & cat), towels, blankets, treats, crates, leashes, collars, and food bowls. Check out the links of the charities for full lists. Please consider contributing any way you can - any & everything will greatly be appreciated!
