Mike with Bob Sheth Manager Econolodge
  " Our Host Property" team check in was here and he housed several of our teams
Now some of the Highlights of this years World Series.......


Two very popular Hall of Fame inductions Pee Wee Miller to the Boys Softball Hall of Fame and David Martin to the SSAA Hall of Fame in Peters Creek N.C.  Beckie Smith, Owner of SSAA Softball came over
from North Carolina to induct David. Congratulations Pee Wee and David!
Sportrax 20u throwing the "Three Peat" sign after taking the title for
the third year in a row...will miss these guys! Hey Ryan how about
starting a new dynasty, should be a bunch of 14u Holmes County
guys that would love to be SPORTRAX Part II
Team 22 girls!  There will be more in the future
Thanks Tim for bringing these ladies to Dalton
Middletown brought the Gems in Girls 19u thanks Betty for the fine team from Middletown......
This will grow our tournament quickly, my dream is Boys and Girls teams from the same area traveling together to play the World Series...there was talk of more of this  for next year.
As it always is.....the REAL highlight of any World Series
is seeing old friends and making new ones. I love this picture
of Chez 20u Catahoula guys....a tear or two as I think back seems they should be still playing 12 or 14u...THANKS guys for so many thrills may there be many more in your future.
New Friends from Indiana.....in their first WorldSeries....Marion Miller and the Rockwood/Finish Works guys finished a very strong second in a great 18u bracket, got a call from Marion they will be in Holmes County this Fall and are bringing another 18u team with them WELCOME TO SSAA Indiana guys!
The Future looks bright with a very strong 13u girls bracket that featured 7 teams and a 16u boys bracket with 12 teams....The Best Is Yet To Come!
Elvis has left the building.....and SSAA has left Dalton.....
Where will we wind up in 2014?
My closing thoughts....I'm but the caretaker of this great event,
this is a responsibility I take seriously.  My prayer is God guide and direct me as I work to give us the best event we can have
and may the memories each player, coach, parent, and offical take away from this event be happy and lasting ones.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT! love Mr. Mike and Miss Ginny
