The 2017 season is complete
Thank you to everyone that participated in the 2017 MGSL softball season. I believe that this was a fun filled year. Ninety-three teams resulting in nearly 675 games played. Thank you to the umpires that officiated those games. A very special thank you to the MGSL board, who without their tireless work ethic, things would not run as smoothly as they did.
