MANASSAS, VIRGINIA – In 2008 the senior softball players got to compete at the City of Champions, play in the Senior Softball Capital of the World and have some year-end fun at the Fun City......all in Virginia. Teams from Florida, Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania played in all three events and from what we hear, several others plan to do the same in 2009.
The 7th ISF Senior World Cup was held on June 20-22 at Salem, Virginia. Nestled in the Roanoke Valley, Salem and the surrounding jurisdictions combined forces to host the World Cup of Senior Softball sanctioned by the International Softball Federation, the worldwide governing body for the sport. Salem has long been a favorite destination for softball players of all ages and the senior participants were not disappointed. The reputation of the event is now circling the globe and promises to bring the sports top athletes to the Blue Ridge Mountains in 2009. Those that were there this year know why they are now called the City of Champions.
