BSN Sports and SSUSA Unite for a Good Cause

June 1, 2020

In our continuing series of SSUSA sponsors, this week we feature BSN Sports.

BSN Sports and Senior Softball USA (USA) have teamed up with a Unity Shop, which will run for a two-week period – beginning on June 12 and concluding on June 29. 

During this time frame, $3.00 per item will be donated to a food bank of SSUSA’s choosing. The shop will include various SSUSA merchandise, such as long sleeve shirts, t-shirts, hoodies, shorts, etc. CLICK HERE to see the flyer


Additionally, in the current pandemic climate, BSN Sports has you covered with either a face mask or neck buff, which you can add on your team logo. The masks (over the ear or over the head) are two-ply and the neck buff is one-ply. Both are washable. Any questions on the masks or neck buff can be directed to Frank Sottile – BSN Sports Sales Pro, via phone (845) 750-0823 or email

BSN Sports is the official ball supplier of SSUSA, providing the Trump Stote Microcell Softball that is used in all SSUSA tournaments, with the exception of tournaments in Las Vegas (Southwest Championships and World Masters Championships), which use the Trump X-Rock Softball.

The man behind the official SSUSA ball is the Rockman, as he is known throughout the sports industry, John Stote.

“Anyone can make a superball,” says Stote. “But it’s important to stay on the specs. If you don’t have a good softball, it doesn’t matter.”

Stote and SSUSA have been partners for over three decades, beginning with Anaconda Sports, then LIDS Sports Group, and now BSN Sports.

“I first met Terry Hennessy at the unification meetings,” continued Stote. “We got together, started testing softballs, and I began attending tournaments. It’s an honor to be the official ball of SSUSA.”

Stote and SSUSA have developed a solid friendship, which even led Stote to attend an SSUSA International Tour to Cuba back in 2011.

Stote was recently honored with the SSUSA Award of Excellence at the 2019 SSUSA Hall of Fame banquet in Las Vegas.

Players, be sure to take advantage of BSN’s current promotion – 20% off catalog, free freight, with code SENIOR (valid 6/1/20 – 12/31/20).
