Congratulations to manager Bob Zukerman and team Post & Beam team for winning the 2017 GCSS Season Championship. P & B won the best 2 out of 3 Playoff Series 2 - 0 against the 1st half champion Sports Focus team. Both teams played their hearts out.

All GCSS members are to be congratulated for the successful season, from the league moving its games to Strongsville, to the return of many 2016 players, while adding a number of new and talented players to the league. This is what senior softball is all about!

2014 League Champions

"Congratulations to the St. Vincent's Spine and Orthopedic Institute team (team #4), managed by Mike Bloch, for winning the 2014 GCSS Championship. In the third and final championship game of the series, St. Vincent's prevailed in a close 5-4 victory over a determined Winar connection team. It was the kind of game where it was a pity there had to be a winner and a loser. As usual, effort and sportsmanship ruled the day. Best regards to the members of Team #4, who played with confidence and poise. You are truly champions.

Our deepest appreciation goes out to all 2014 GCSS teams and players for another successful season of senior softball and camaraderie. At the end of the day, that is what senior ball is all about. We look forward to seeing each of you back next year."

2013 League Champions

Our Hats are off to the Green Rick Roller Machine for winning the GCSS league championship. They won the championship in two games with great hitting, some super fielding plays, and wonderful sportsmanship. The Yellow Team had the lead at times and kept coming after the Green Team but just could not get those hits when needed with men in scoring position. There was a nice turn out of players from the two teams that did not make the playoffs. Maybe we should play more games in September as the weather Tuesday and today was fantastic.

A special thanks goes to our commissioner for handling what seemed like an impossible schedule in the last few weeks. Joe did an excellent job in keeping the teams competitive through out the season.

The Leagues next meeting will be the first Thursday in November, the 7th! It will start at 10 am at the Brook Park Recreation Center.

On the agenda will be nomination of officers (2 year terms).

Think how you can help the league by becoming an officer and not a complainer.

As I walked away after the games and saw Joe having to put the pitching screen away I could not but think how few people know how much work someone like Joe puts in that no one knows about. They just show up and play. Do not be afraid to shake Joe's hand and thank him for all of his efforts.
