Softball is important to the social and personal health of our players, to be able to bring people together in a fun, competitive but most of all safe environment for all to enjoy. We believe our mission of raising money and donating to our local animal charities is an obligation and a must each and every year. SSL is committed to giving to help our wonderful non-profit charities that do the hard and import work of saving as many loving pets as possible. SSL donates Thousands of dollars out of our general fund that goes directly to our partner charities. We are thankful for all our members because without them, none of this would be possible!
Congratulations, 2023 Champions!
