This past summer, the Milford Senior League Softball team had a historical season, playing in the Senior World Series, the first of any Milford Softball team to date. Winning a series of tournaments to qualify, including State and Regional playoffs, the girls made an impression in the World Series which was held this year in Frankford, Delaware.

It started with Milford being crowned State Champions, and then traveling to Massachusetts for the regional competition. Milford was up to the task, being crowned champions of the Eastern Region. Punching their ticket for Frankford. While they may not have played as well as they wanted in the series, the fact that they got there at all was a tribute to their competitive spirit.

Their accomplishments were recently recognized, as the 147th Delaware General assembly took the time to honor them with individual recognition for their accomplishments. Senator Gary Simpson was on hand to present all the players and coaches with certificates paying tribute to them. Senator Simpson was proud of the girls and thrilled with how they represented Milford.

“When I was asked by Ruth Campbell to formally recognize the achievements of the team, I was more than happy to oblige.,” stated Senator Simpson. “I was delighted to be asked to once again participate in this small way and it gave me an excellent opportunity to get to meet this talented group of girls. While these girls didn’t win their final game, they are arguably the best softball team to ever play the sport in Milford.”

Pitcher for the team, Haylee Scruggs was thrilled with the whole World Series experience. “We all enjoyed the experience of meeting other teams from other states and countries and the way some of the cultures were different than ours,” commented Scruggs. Another player who had great tournament play was Emily Messick, who enjoyed a big game in the finale. “My favorite moment was when I hit the two home runs against the returning champion Puerto Rico. Even though they counted the one as a ground rule double, it just felt great.”
