Really! It’s the final issue of 2015? It feels like we were just at the Winter Nationals, getting the season started and now we are wrapping up the year. Here at the Magazine we are shutting down the 2015 season and have already begun to fill in the blanks on the 2016 calendar with our promotional dates and locations. We are working on a list of new stuff headed your way for 2016 to make your Softball Magazine experience the best it can be.. Our World Famous Bat Wars event will be returning next season. We are just now finishing up the negotiations on the locations so be sure to check the batwars.com site for updated information for the 2016 stops. Also, I want to remind our readers that since we cover so many different Worlds and Nationals, we cannot always fit all of them in the last issue of the year. If you do not see a certain National or World coverage, hold on, because it will more than likely be in the first issue of 2016. We have been doing it this way for years now, but I like to remind everyone that it takes two magazines to fit it all in. Our adult Softball Spring Training is set and we do have some limited spots available at press time. We always have cancellations or changes, so be sure to contact us if you are interested in joining us in March of 2016. Be sure to act fast, since there are only a few spots remaining. An SST ticket makes a great holiday gift for that softball player in your family or for a friend. For more information please visit the softballspringtraining.com website. Talking about camps, we are only a couple of weeks away from hosting our inaugural Softball Magazine Senior Softball Camp. It will be held December 2-5 at the Cocoa Beach Softball Complex and we are very excited and pleased with our first-year turnout. We will be joined by long-time sponsors and supporters, such as Louisville Slugger, Miken Sports, Dudley Sports, Easton Sports, 3N2 Sports, Jugs Sports and Combat Sports to name a few, all on-site with their newest technology in senior softball bats and equipment. The format will be much like the camps we host in spring for all ages, with a bit more focus on one-on-one training with camp instructors. We will have plenty of batting practice, scrimmage games and contests along with instructional time each day. Three days of sun, fun and softball the first week of December on Florida’s east coast almost makes you want to be over 50 even if you’re not! Stay tuned to our Facebook page for updates from Cocoa Beach to check it out. If you have a senior player in your family or you know a senior player, tell them to check it out at www.seniorsoftballcamp.com - there are still a few spots left! Before I sign off and wrap up another year, I would like to thank everyone that makes what we have been doing for the past 19 years possible. We are very proud of our relationships within the bat and ball industry and want to say thank you to the manufacturers and sponsors that make what we do possible. Without them, the magazine, the promotions and the fun stuff we do to promote the sport of softball would not be possible. Thank you to the readers, players and enthusiasts that love our sport and support this publication. Without you, there is no Softball Magazine, Softball Spring Training or Bat Wars. The saying goes, “you can lead, follow, or get out of the way.” At Softball Magazine we like to lead the way. The view is much better out front! Until next year, remember your family, friends and our troops, especially those who are deployed, during the holidays and stay safe. Have a great holiday season and best wishes for a happy New Year!
