Thank you for
visiting our website. The FSSA was inspired by the late
Ray Odom and serves
many charity driven functions in our senior softball community. You can read more
about the FSSA by clicking here (click on any
red link on this website to read more). In addition to helping
with fundraisers for members in need, the FSSA sponsors
the Legends Hall of Fameto recognize those
senior players with years of
tournament success at the national level. This website will provide the list of
inductees, criteria for entry and the application process. Visit
our Legends Hall of Fame page here.
The FSSA is sponsoring a documentary film titled "Extra Innings" in which a film crew is following a men's Senior Major Plus softball team on their quest to win a national championship. We will provide the tournament schedules and a special charity event update page called News and Events with the latest results, commentary and pictures uploaded to our Photo Gallery.
In 2013 and 2014 the Hollis team traveled to Nagua, Dominican Republic and won the Goodwill Games this year going 3 - 0 (see the video here). Even better, the boys continued their charitable giving by donating thousands of baseball items to several of the surrounding villages through our Feeding the Dream program.
The team also traveled to Detroit, Michigan this summer for a Celebrity Fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Club of Macomb County. This event raised over $20,000 for the local charity and our plans are to return to the Dominican Republic and Cuba in 2015. You can help us achieve our goal of charitable giving through senior sports by donating here to the FSSA.

Extra Innings Documentary
Follow a Major Senior Softball team on a quest
The Baby Boomers of today are a new breed of "old guys" who are not ready for retirement or the rocking chair. The Extra Innings Documentary film is about a group of senior softball players coming together to chase a dream of winning the World Masters Championship, the highest level of competition, in Las Vegas, Nevada this fall.
The film crew has followed the team to the Dominican Republic and Detroit, Michigan charity events and has great footage to share with us.
