​New season, new format.  This year our league has switched to playing on Mondays and Wednesdays.  Game time remain the same 6pm start.  An extra option has been introduced as well.  If a person wishes to play only one night there is a reduced fee for such.  Our fees still include uniforms provided by the league.  We will still be offering student athlete scholarships, league-wide batting practice at Four Winds Field and a weekend extravaganza for our Special Olympic friends.  Come goin our league and feel the pride of giving back to the community.

​Fall Ball sign up is under way.  Help make this another fun post season program.  This is where a good number of new people have joined our league.  This year already has new faces.

The East Division Post Season tournament is now under way.  The two survivors of the winners bracket are HG Christman and RLH Plumbing teams.  The loser bracket contenders are Zahoran Funeral Home and Fiddlers' Hearth.  No teams are out of the hunt.  So good luck to all! 

Our "Home Run Derby" knocked it out of the park this Wednesday.  The winner was Mike Reddy and the runner up was Billy Cronkhite.  As before the awards will be provided at the banquet on August 29th.  Look for pictures of this event on the "Photos" page.

The Midwest Senior Softball League will have Hall of Fame inductions on Tuesday August 29. We are
looking for ways of contacting a next of kin for Billy Balock and ways for getting information on Herschel
Wells (last known home in Syracuse, Indiana) and Henry Smith (last known home in Northeastern
Indiana, perhaps Angola or Auburn).

Another "Giving Back to the Community" event went well this past Saturday (July 8th,2023).  The Mid-America Senior Softball League hosted a Special Olympics team in a softball game.  The Olympians played a game versus a group of League All-Stars.  A day of fun, food and yes, softball.

Our board of directors has chosen the winning candidate for the $1000.00 scholarship.  The award ceremony will be scheduled for a Tuesday June 13th.  The recipient's coach who is also a radio personality will give his thanks to our league and honor his student athlete.  This will be a media event.   

Mayor Dave Wood is scheduled to throw out the first pitch on Thursday May 11th.   Members of the media are expected to be there to report on it.

Central Services of Mishawaka will be replacing the yellow home run protective fence topper soon.

We have in place the digital form on this website for applying for scholarships.  We will be giving out one $1,000.00 scholarship to a college bound senior from a local high school this season. This will be given specifically to a softball or baseball team member.  For a student to apply they must acquire a password from Rich Gosbin via email.  [email protected].

Our league will have additional exposure in the upcoming May issue of Senior Life magazine.  Our league commissioner was interviewed to glean information about our newly formed softball league.

To date we have added around 23 new players to the group of returnees to Mishawaka.

The league wide batting practice the league paid for went well.  It was held at the Four Winds field in the First Source Performance Center.  A decent amount of people showed up to the event.  We had a national championship winning league member there, a couple of our league umpires, the Mishawaka City Parks Director of Activities and one of our female participants among others.  There was a total number of people there in excess of thirty.  Our league was well received by Mark Hailey former coach of the South Bend Silver hawks.
Mark had a connection to our Venezuelan players since he had coached down there in the past.
