THANK YOU TO BILL SANTOS AND BOB HACKETT FOR THEIR ASSISTANCE
IN PRESENTING THE AWARDS.

My Wife Natalie has been involved as my Partner in Organizing the SCSL , being the Treasurer and doing the Field Work Improvements for many (27 ) Softball Seasons. Every morning during the season she is at the field getting it ready for Game Time. She puts a 100% effort into making the Field named after Her Loving Husband the BEST SOFTBALL FIELD and LEAGUE in the FALL RIVER AREA . A lot of people state where would Softball in the City be without Jack Hackett-- Well the TRUTH is where would it be without HIS WIFE.
