Welcome Girls Teams to 2017 SSAA Slow Pitch World Series!
A Welcoming Message from Tournament Director Mike Mason
We are proud to offer girls brackets at this years Boys Softball World Series. This decision comes after surveying the 2017 tournament scene and sensing the need to offer girls brackets at this years tourney. In the past I did offer a few girls teams entry on a limited basis to the BWS. The decision was made to open our youth slow pitch to age 10u-13u-16u- and 19/23u.
This will make for an exciting atmosphere at the park as these ladies join the 45-50 boys teams that play regularly in this event. A lot of boys teams are from areas that also feature girls teams making it favorable for the groups to travel together to Dalton. The quality and excitment of the Boys Softball World Series will no doubt be appreciated by any girls teams that visit us to play in 2017.
Welcome Ladies to SSAA! Mr. Mike and Miss Ginny

A few final thoughts from Director Mike Mason.....
It's been a privilige to meet and get to know so many dedicated Coaches, Parents, Players, Umpires, Complex Operators, Parks and Recreation Officials, Motel Owners, and Chamber of Commerce Officals over the past 25 years.
In a recent year Miss Ginny and I traveled over 15,000 miles visiting Slow Pitch folks from Minnesota to Georgia from the Atlantic Coast to Louisiana's Gulf Coast. I've been blessed from above with countless friends and I thank God for allowing me to do what I enjoy a lot.....promoting slow pitch softball. If you are looking at joining us, we welcome you! It's simple for me...I'm Slow Pitch By Choice!
