Thanks to all of the umpires and coaches (and SEFSA board members) that came out to play in the year end "Umpires vs Coaches" softball games - despite the rainy weather! The umpires were victorious this year but that will not be the case next season! Yes, that is a challenge!
Thank you to all of the SEFSA umpires and coaches that worked so hard to make the 2017 season such a success! We hope to see all of you next season!
