FSSA Sponsors Extra Innings Documentary Film
Extra Innings Documentary is film about aging athletes in the
twilight of their lives bonding together to achieve lofty goals on a softball
field. Watch the
trailer above and visit our
here. The aging baby boomer population who once dominated the diamonds
around the USA on a nightly basis in the 80's and 90's have now formed a massive
brotherhood of "over 50" softball players. Athletes who participate in
these "half-century" leagues play until they are well into their 70's and still
bash 300' home runs and score from second on a single through the infield.
Many of them are inductees in our
Legends Hall of Fame and many others like USSA, ISA, and Heartland.
This documentary follows the men of Team
Hollis, with more than a few big home
run hitters, as they venture on their quest to win a World Title at
the highest level of slow pitch softball in the USA. View their
tournament schedule here.
