Welcome to Softball History Legends Section. I'd like to dedicate a section of Softball History to a few of the greatest hitters in Slow Pitch Softball History. Mike Macenko, Bruce Meade, Craig Elliott, Rick Scherr, Dirk Androff, Carl Rose,  and some others. These guys are synonymous with the word softball. Macenko has made the USSSA, ISA and NSA Hall of Fames. Meade is in the ASA, NSA and USSSA hall of fames and Androff is in the NSA Hall of Fame and recently nominated to the ISA Hall of Fame with more to follow. Scherr is in the USSSA and ASA Halls. Meade and Macenko are the only two players that are in 3 national halls of fame. By the way, these two guys also have also hit the 2 longest home runs on record (508 for Macenko and 510 feet for Meade).

 

Mike Macenko is the greatest home run hitter of all-time, he has hit over 6179 in his storied career. He started out his career in Cleveland, OH playing for such teams as Hillcrest Tavern and Nationwide Advertising Services before going to the Pro League for a year and then onto Steele's Sports. He played for Sunbelt for a year and Ritch's-Superior for two years before coming back to Steele's. Macenko retired in 1998, but decided to make a comeback in 1999 playing for R&D/Nike. He has to his credit, the two greatest single seasons in history (1987 and 1988). These records may never be approached again. He has been a 5-time national championship MVP award winner (2 ASA's, 2 NSA's and an ISA). To give you an example of how good this man was, here are some seasonal stats of his career. H was named to the All-World teams an incredible 32 times in his career. He is also a member of 4 of the softball association's Hall of Fames. He was elected in the ISA Hall of Fame in 1997, the NSA Hall of Fame in 1998, the USSSA Hall of Fame in 1999 and the ASA Hall of Fame in 2006. He along with Don Arndt are the only two players in Softball History to hit over 6000 Home Runs.

Bruce Meade is probably the most recognized slow pitch player of his generation, He also has many homers in his career, but was known more for his high batting averages. According to reliable sources, he has led the nation in batting an unprecedented 5 times. He started out his career in Florida playing for Copher Brothers and Warren Motors before moving on to Nelson's Painting. He then went to play for such renowned teams as Dave Carroll's, Jerry's Caterers, Elite Coatings, Smythe Sox, Steele's Sports, Ritch's-Kirk's and Starpath. Finally he came back home to play for Vernon's. Meade has won three MVP awards on the national championship level (2 ASA's and a USSSA). He has also had some of the greatest single seasons in history. Here are some of the seasonal stats in Bruce Meade's career. He led the nation in batting five of these years. Meade was named to 25 All-World teams in his long glorious career. This figure will rise each year as he is also piling up many all world honors on the senior circuit these days. Meade is also one of only two players in softball history elected to all four association's Hall of Fames. He gained election into the USSSA Hall of Fame in 1989, the NSA Hall of Fame in 1992, the ASA Hall of Fame in 1999 and the ISA Hall of fame in 2003. Only one other person has elections into three of the Hall's (Mike Macenko) and only six other players in the history of this game have even two elections under their belts (Dick Bartel, Don Arndt, Rick Scherr, Bill Gatti, Todd Joerling (3), Mike Shenk, Brett Helmer (3) and the late Dirk Androff).

Craig Elliott is considered the greatest player in slow pitch softball history by a lot of people and they wouldn't be far off by feeling that way. At the end of his career when all was said and done; Craig Elliott made the ASA all-american team from 1977-1987 (11 straight times), he made the USSSA all-world team 6 times between 1981 and 1988, the NSPC all-tournament team 4 times from 1979 through 1983. He was a member of the ISA and NSA national all-tournament team as well. He has also been named the MVP of the Smoky Mountain Classic on three occasions (playing for 3 different teams, 1980 for Jerry's, 1982 for York-Sanders and 1983 for Elite). In the 1982 classic, Elliott was only 31-39, .795 average with 26 home runs and 48 RBIs. By the way, he did all that in only 6 games. That was the beauty of Craig Elliott, He compiled stats like this that just made people shake their head in amazement. He is a consensus all-time first team player in both the ASA and USSSA.

Rick Scherr was named the player of the decade for the 1980's. And if you look at these stats he compiled for that decade, you'll see why. He is a USSSA and an ASA Hall of Fame inductee: Scherr was a 10-time ASA All-American, 8-time USSSA All-World Team selection and also won the ISA MVP in 1985. He was selected to the NSPC all tournament team from 1979 through and including 1983. He has won a total of 5 National MVP awards (ASA-1981, 82 and 84), USSSA in 1981 and the aforementioned ISA award in 1985.

Note - It is said that Rick Scherr hit a total of 4238 HRs and batted .722 in his career.

 

Dirk Androff is one player who had the same kind of stats and commanded the same kind of respect as these other greats. There is no telling how his numbers could have stacked up to these giants of the game, but his untimely death in 1997 did nothing but increase his already growing legend status. Androff was named to 23 All-World teams, winning national MVP honors 3 times (91-USSSA, 92-ASA and 95-NSA). He has been inducted to both the ISA and NSA Halls of Fame. Take a look at what he did in his short career:

Carl Rose is another legend, before all is said and done, this guy will be one of the best ever. Rose has 20 All-World selections and 2 national MVP honors (USSSA and ISA, both in 1998). The player of the decade for the 1990's has also put together some amazing stats:
