Meet the NAFA Masters Players And Teams That Still Play “for the love of the game.”

Thursday, September 20th, 2018

CARSON CITY, Nev. – From age 40 to well past 60, there are fastpitch softball players on teams across the U.S. and Canada whose fastpitch flame refuses to flicker or die out.

These Masters, who have played the game they have loved for 30, 40, and 50-plus years, stubbornly refuse to allow achy throwing arms, balky knees, nagging hamstrings, sore backs, or doctors orders (“you need to find a sport more suitable for your age!”) to usher them from the game.

Here’s a salute to just a few of NAFA’s Masters

Jim Decoter, Steve Korsa, Paul Carlton, Mike Drew, Andy Watson, Gil Gardner, Kevin Kammueller, Mike Massine, Paul Rubin, Eric Linnell, Ray Biggini, Troy Morrison, Bobby Smith, Darren Zack, Kelly Wenstrom, Gregor Morgan, Ned Waters, Donovan Reyes, Anthony Fabrizio, Fernando Ramirez, Mike Hoadley, Andy Martinez, Ralph Roybal, Craig Piccock, Bob Steehler, Chuck Smith, John Givens, Bobby Doe, Curt Culver, Monte McCrary, John Melchiari, Tim Jacobs, Mike Hopkins, Billy Frank, Shawn Samson, Doug Erock…and so many, many more.
