Hurricane Ian Slams Winter Nationals' Site

Oct. 1, 2022

     The devastating Hurricane Ian tore through Ft. Myers last week hitting the home of the SSUSA’s Winter Nationals, which runs Nov. 8-13.

     “We have canceled all events through Oct. 31,” said Jeff Mielke, Executive Director of Lee County Sports Development and longtime sponsor of the Winter National Championships.

     “I should have more information next week on how far out we have to cancel things.”

     The softball complexes are currently being used for various staging/recovery efforts, he said.

     If the complexes are not available in Ft. Myers, Cape Coral or Naples, SSUSA officials say they have lined up an alternate site in Polk County.

     “We will make that decision next week, after we hear from our Ft. Myers’ Hosts,” said Terry Hennessy, SSUSA’s CEO.
