NEWS for November 17         Update News

Gone, but not forgotten Phil Reilly, RSSA softball player for many years, and all around good guy recently passed. Phil retired from the game in about 2010 at the age of 80 due to health issues, but his involvement in our league goes back to its beginnings in the late 1980s. Ricky’s Embers and the Codgers were two of the teams he played for. I know he enjoyed playing ball and the camaraderie of the RSSA league. His funeral will be at the Church of Corpus Christi in Roseville on Tuesday, November 19th at 11AM with visitation from 10 to 11AM. I was proud to have him as my father-in-law.
