You have now entered the Texas Softball Hall
Of Fame website, where Leadership and
Character get revealed in many ways. We are
truly glad that you have chosen to read the
2014 homepage today. It is exciting
to become part of the countless
improvements, skill enhancements, and
attitude changes which develop in the
context of our softball relationships. We
believe that even though we have an
authentically good history and that our
leagues are functioning very well now, the
best is yet to be. If you also believe it,
you can see it.
Softball Hall of Fame Director since 1985,
Ralph Hall, focuses on a clear vision of how
the game of softball can be played. Rather
than try to explain his vision to you, he
would ask you to come to the ballpark, stand
beside him and then walk around the Park to
see it for yourself. Together we will see
more walking through the gates of trust than
we could ever picture in the mirror of
accomplishments. With eyes wide open you can
do more than just catch the historic ball,
you can catch a new vision for how these
games are planned and how they can be
played. With vision, caring, and skill, we
see that plan. With cooperation, commitment,
and courage, we lead the people.
The value of this leadership
is connected to those leaders in softball
who are rooted in character and are nurtured
by sportsmanship. Their influence and impact
will last far beyond Ralph's work or
With that kind of inspiration, we will
aspire to our motto: "WE WORK. YOU PLAY."
2014 we are
playing leagues at two
locations, Cullen Park in far west
Houston and Community Park in Missouri City,
Texas. Our priority again this year is to
promote these leagues. This is our game and
recreational softball is spoken here. Aqui
se habla softball. There will be many whose
hopes and dreams will come alive in
2014. Ultimately, it is not the
cheers of the spectators or the accolades of
peer recognition, but it is the quietly
courageous whispers from heartfelt
relationships that add value to our lives.
Those who step up to the plate and get field
tested can fully appreciate the strength of
the play style we enjoy.
The question for
you is a simple and straight forward one.
Will you come and bring your team to join us
in this mission?
Sportsmanship is our history and
Sportsmanship, fairness, and
character are well thought out priorities
for those who choose Texas Softball Hall of
Fame and remain its loyal supporters.
