Batter Up! Teams are forming now!

Softball Tournament to benefit Fayette County’s Homebound Seniors

To raise awareness and funds for programs that help Fayette County's homebound seniors remain independent and improve their quality of life, the community is invited to participate in Fayette Senior Services “Hit One for the Homebound” softball tournament on April 10, 2010 at Mead Fields in Peachtree City. The games are scheduled to begin at 8 a.m.

The tournament will have two divisions, one for men's teams and the other will be co-ed play. Awards will be given for the top three teams in both divisions. The tournament will follow USSSA rules, which allows players of all skill levels to enjoy the games.

Dawn Davis, FSS Health & Wellness Coordinator and Tournament Director states, “We are challenging local businesses, churches, and individuals to assemble teams and help us “Hit One for the Homebound”. The in-home services we provide such as personal care, light housekeeping, and Meals On Wheels help hundreds of homebound senior citizens with their basic needs so they can live independently in their own home. The Hit One for the Homebound Softball Tournament is a fun way for us to raise awareness for the specialized needs of the homebound.”

Space is limited to 24 teams so sign up early! A minimum 10-person team is required to play but teams may have as many players as they like on their roster. Applications and tournament guidelines are available online at or at Fayette Senior Services Life Enrichment Center located at 4 Center Drive in Fayetteville. The application fee is $300 per team ($400/team after April 2, 1010). For more information contact Dawn Davis at 770-461-0813 ext. 124 or at
