Oct. 1, 2011 – Senior Softball-USA

The Senior Softball Hall of Fame has named three women pioneer players as part of its class of 2011:

Helen Boyd: “She is the most consistent pitcher in senior softball. Helen is the pitcher her teammates want out there in the most important games. This respect reaches beyond her team as her competitors recognize her skills too. She is a respected voice for the defense. When she is on the mound, she believes in herself and believes she can get the best of every batter.”

Shirley Grizzle: “She is always concerned about the well-being of her teammates and wants what is best for everyone. I have not been around many people who love the game of softball as much as Shirley does. When she is on the mound, she is in control of the game. Shirley is a winner on and off the field. She has won numerous team titles as well as many individual awards.”

Shirley Smith: “There may never have been the first Florida senior women’s softball team if Shirley had not said, ‘Yes, I will help’ in 1994. As a Florida Spirit and Freedom Spirit player, Shirley hit more home runs than any other teammate. She has made numerous running shoe-string catches in center field. Her knowledge of the rules is unquestionable and her attitude and skills are well beyond the ordinary.”
