What is the best advice you have ever received?
The best advice that I've ever received was given to me when I was a lot
younger, after my team lost the championship game of a little league tournament.

I was upset because that game was the "most important game of my life" - that's
when a very influential coach of mine calmed me down and said "honey, yes, this
was the most important game of your life. But tomorrow, tomorrow's game will be
the most important of your life. Every game that you play in is the most
important of your life, so play hard every pitch, every swing, every out, every
inning, every game." This is the advice I live by!

We would like to THANK all the pick-up players this week-end at Florida's
Finest. Jess, Lauren, Mac, and Sam. Kirsti,Arielle,& Steph we hope you had fun at Furman. LB in West Virginia. Brandi still sleeping.............
Saturday we didn't fair too well with wins in our showcasing, but Sunday we came out of our shoes defeating Seminole GOLD(picked up Gator-Fitzpatrick pitcher)6-1.
Jess pitched a super game, defense superb and our bats were strong! Then we faced the always fun and very tough Mustang GOLD team. We had them 2-0 for about 4 innings and they nicked back runs and went ahead 3-2. We had our chances with bases loaded to get them nervous enough to change pitchers-getting out of their jam. Was a super fun game against another well respected Florida team. Would have liked to have moved on to face the very tough Florida GOLD team with all our players present-would have been a super game! We are starting to come together and by summer should be looking strong!

The HEAT gets 2 more offers this week-end!! Way to go girls!!

The Day We Became-Miss Sarasota Softball
The Day We Became
Miss Sarasota Softball


We, ourselves the undersigned, together hereby associate for the purpose of, and do hereby make and form a corporation, not for profit, under the general corporation laws of the State of Florida. The name of the proposed corporation shall be known as:

Miss Sarasota Softball

February 24, 1976 was the day the vision of eight people came into being. They had the dream of seeing a place where young girls could play softball. They wanted the girls to learn about being teammates, teach them how to be competitive, and most importantly about being friends. They wanted girls to have the determination to win and have the courage to lose.

We would like for you to know who these eight people were.

Harold Miller                  Edward Menchinger
President                      Vice President

Florence Bivens                   Harry West
Secretary                         Treasurer
Directors
James Stinnet,Judy Moody,Kenneth Langford, Robert Maxa

It makes one wonder if they could have ever envisioned Miss Sarasota Softball as it is today. So many young girls have passed through our gates and have played on our fields. We have Mothers who played here and are now watching their daughters play.

Miss Sarasota Softball has been here for over 30 years and with the support of our families, we will be here another 30 years. We want to keep the dream alive.

IN MEMORIAM SALLY SCUDDER
Long-time coach Sally Scudder lost her battle with cancer. She will be missed.

Sallie Scudder has been a coach with the Tampa Mustangs since the fall of 1993, coaching the first ever fastpitch team in the organization while the others were still playing slowpitch. Those teams have amassed over 300 wins including a 1995 World Series Championship, 1995 NSA 3RD Place Finish, 1998 AAU Nationals Runner-Up, 1996 ISA State Championship, 1997 ISA Winter World Series Championship, 1998 ISA State Runner-Up, 1998 ISA Winter World Series Runner-Up, and 2003 18U PONY Nationals Sweet Sixteen finish.

Scudder's teams have earned 2 berths to the ASA "A" Nationals (1996 & 1998), and competed in 5 NSA World Series, 3 ISA World Series, 1 AFA National Championship, and 1 Pony National as well as Carolina Dynamite Classic Exposure tournaments, the Plantation Rising Stars tournaments, and the Mustangs' own Florida's Finest College Exposure tournaments.

Over 50 of her 18U players have earned college softball scholarships (over 20 at the Division I level) and gone on to play at every level - D1, D11, D111, NAIA, and Junior College - including schools such as: University of North Carolina, Florida Atlantic University, University of South Florida, University of Florida, Florida State University, Stetson, Southern Miss, and Ole Miss.

A super college coach turn out during that game with the HEAT Colorado Sparkler 9th place vs. the Wichita Mustangs 4th in Broomfield Colorado. A great display of softball talent by both teams.

RISING STARS SHOWCASE-RESCHEDULED JANUARY 2006
newspotlight
DUE TO HURRICANE WILMA THE RISING STARS SHOWCASE TOURNAMENT COULD BE
CANCELLED/POSTPONED. WITH MANY HOTELS AND FAMILIES STILL WITHOUT ANY POWER
IT'S STILL UP IN THE AIR AT THIS POINT IN TIME. YOU CAN LOG ONTO THE RISING STARS
WEBSITE FOR FUTURE UPDATES.

AS OF TUESDAY 10-25
ATTENTION ALL RISING STARS PARTICIPANTS
Including Teams, College Coaches, Umpires, and Vendors

Due to Hurricane Wilma and the severe disruption to our city, county, and state infrastructures (power, water, communications, etc), it is necessary to postpone the Rising Stars Showcase Tournament & Recruiting Camp.

In our 15 year history of hosting events, we have never been faced with having to make this type of decision, and we do so under the most extreme conditions. Your safety and your comfort are our utmost concern.

Until power and communications are restored, it will be difficult to contact us on an individual basis. Please check this official Rising Stars website for accurate information. Additional information will be posted regarding the new date as soon as possible.

We at Rising Stars wish to thank you for your understanding, your continued support, and your patience. All of us are safe, and we appreciate your prayers

********************************************************************************************
UPDATE:
Attention All Rising Stars Showcase Tournament and Recruiting Camp Participants!!

We are very happy to announce that the Rising Stars Showcase Tournament and Recruiting Camp have been rescheduled for January 6, 7, and 8, 2006.

The Rising Stars Showcase Tournament games will be held starting on the afternoon of Friday, January 6, through the afternoon on Sunday, January 8. The Rising Stars Get Game Recruiting Camp will be held on Friday morning, January 6. Practice games will be held on Thursday evening, January 5 and Friday morning, January 6.

The Town of Davie and their Parks and Recreation Department have made tremendous progress in restoring services to its citizens and to its facilities. Their dedication to girl's softball and their desire to insure the success of this recruiting opportunity has been a major contributing factor in our ability to reschedule these important events.

The college coaches have overwhelmingly approved of the new dates, and they are excited about being able to come to South Florida in January.

If you had air transportation, please contact your air carrier immediately and let them know that the tournament has been rescheduled. Please contact Liz Bobb at 954-236-0573 or via email at cleanmastr@aol.com as soon as possible to reconfirm your hotel reservations.

Also, please contact us via email at risingstarsfla@aol.com or via phone at 954-680-9853 and let us know that you will be joining us. We need to hear from you by November 25.

We are very excited that the Rising Stars Showcase Tournament is back and we look forward to seeing you in January!

UPDATE ON NEW ORLEANS VOO-DOO GOLD
LOUISIANA VOODOO

Several readers have expressed concern about the players on the Voodoo. SPY was copied on the following memo to WA Ladyhawks:

"Bob,

Thanks for your thoughts and prayers. As bad as it is right now we are thankful that all of our families in the New Orleans area did evacuate and are safe. There are a couple of us that are fortunate to be living in Lafayette, about 130 miles to the west of New Orleans. We were spared. Everyone in New Orleans is displaced around the state with family and hopefully will get a look at there houses soon. The outcome is yet to be determined. Please tell everyone within the LadyHawk family and the Seattle/Metro ASA we very much appreciate their thoughts. People outside of the ASA Softball community do not realize how fortunate we are to have such a close and caring group.

TEN COMMANDMENTS CONCERNING SOFTBALL
In NCFA Fastpitch Delivery.........
by Bill Lammel
I. The only constant is a player's ability to always hustle!
II. Do not quit! Never Quit!
III. You'll never be a .300 hitter if unless you take the bat off your shoulder.
IV. No one ever became a player by walking after the ball!
V. Keep your head up and you may never have to keep it down!
VI. Do not alibi on the bad hops! Anyone can field the good ones.
VII. When running the bases, always slide when in doubt! Always slide!
VIII.Always run them out, you never know!
IX.Do not find much fault in umpires. You cannot expect them to be as perfect as you.
   X.A pitcher who doesn't have control-doesn't have anything!

Heat wins Sarasota ISA Quicksilver tourney
The Q/S 10U hosted a great tournament this week-end. We decided to play and support our 'lil troopers. The Heat faced the Mustangs Holle(14U) in the Championship Game after defeating the 18U Spartans in the semi's. Ashton Whidden (our 'lil tiken) pitched a super shut-out Championship game defeating the Mustangs 8-0. The Mustangs Holle group are a superb bunch of girls going in the right direction with great Coaching and talented ball players. I'm not sure which team was bigger the Mustangs or the HEAT! If this group stays together in years to come they will win many more National titles. Well this rounds out the HEAT's fall season. We are looking forward to a Superb Christmas Party with a great many of friends and family.

We hope Miss Christy Sirus of Q/S-Sirus 18U is doing well.

We wish everyone a Happy and safe Holiday season.

The HEAT was in the Gold bracket finals waiting on the semi's to finish when the rains came down! Since we had not had a loss the Heat was deamed Champions of the Gold division. We got a few games in warmin' us up- The HEAT will practice hard this week and next then head south to Plantation.

COLORADO BOUND!!!! Where the deer & the prairie dog roam!
While some teams prefer to bask in the rains of Florida-we will be heading to Colorado for the awesome game of softball. The drier weather is a nice treat for the humidified Floridian.
The HEAT is attending the Colorado Sparkler ASA Showcase tourney. Indiana Magic were Champions of the Gold division in 2003!
We will attend their NFCA camp and have two practice games prior to our showcase games.
Tuesday
Heat vs. Pride, Texas

Wednesday

Then Thursday bracket play begins!
Good Luck to all the teams seeking that title-ASA,NSA,ISA,PONY!
Whichever you prefer!
As Always be careful in your travels this holiday week!

After Colorado we will prepare for rain ourselves the end of July in Plantation Rising Stars Summer College Showcase tournament.
GOOOOO Heat!

Results:
The Heat placed 13th out of 61 teams-We seeded 2nd in our pool play in which we had to face a #1 seed in bracket play in the platinum bracket. Of course we had to face a top Florida team. The HEAT fell to the Gold Coast Hurricanes 2-1 to put us in the losers bracket right out of the shoot! I won't mention the really unbelieveable call that gave the game away-but I just did-the Hurricanes and all the teams watching knew we got a raw deal, but our girls forged onward defeating the CO Ice & OK Pride before taking our 2nd loss to the CO Cardinals. The Hurricanes took 4th. Our bats have been hot, but our defense must playball!! The NCFA camp was 1st Class! Very well run and I felt all our girls did SUPER with the pressure of College scouts present! Colorado was just beautiful and the weather was just awesome!! 50+* in the a.m. and 80* in the afternoon. One afternoon we had to bundle up it was so cold!!!! The girls explored Estes Park went horseback riding and white water rafting. If you want College exposure in July Colorado is the place to go! Awesome!!
