2017 Fall Ball Information



We are excited to let you know that the Southern Softpaw League (SSL) is in full preparation for the 2017 fall season! We are hoping your team will be coming back for another fun-filled season of softball, friends, and memories to last forever!!


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.

MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT!!

FIELDS

We are excited to announce that SSL will have a new home for the 2017 season at Nickajack Park in Smyrna/Mableton!

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, and do not leave him/her unattended! 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!

Nickajack Park

As always, be sure to remove and secure all valuables in your vehicles. The park and league are not responsible.
