About the Sluggers

The Sluggers softball team was established in 2008 and was originally named the Smith Sluggers after our team sponsor Smith Engineering Company

Smith Engineering is also where we received our team color of green.

The Sluggers received a second place trophy in the 6 & under division in 2008, a first place trophy in the 6 & under division in 2009, and a second place trophy in the 8 & under division in 2010. The Sluggers strive not for the win but the good sportsmanship between girls and other teams, as well as excellent technique to allow the girls to continue to perform at a high level and remain safe in their playing career. The Sluggers coaches work hard in order to provide a family atmosphere that will allow the team to bond both mentally and physically on and off the field.

Every year the Sluggers team is proud to welcome back a large number of returning team members.

2022 Spring Sluggers

The amazing support of our Slugger parents, grandparents, and friends has made the Slugger family dynamic possible.  Without this fantastic help and backing the Sluggers Softball team would not exist.

The support of the Slugger team by our family and friends has been so great we decided to do it all over again.  Our youngest has been on the softball field since she was just a few weeks old.

  1. What a great site for your team! My daughter just started playing U10 softball and she loves it. Thanks so much for visiting our blog!

  2. Thank you for commenting on my daughter’s softball pictures. It is such a great game . . . so fun to watch!

    1. Don’t forget to take a light sweater – it gets a bit cool down there. Maybe stay a little late and watch the bat flight in the evening – it’s “cool” too.

  3. Oh, how I wish we lived in Roswell! I love NM and have been to Roswell many times. I’m writing to thank you for clicking the LIKE button on one of my haiku on my “Randa Lane…” haiku site. Apparently, you gals think it’s pretty funny to foul a ball into the umpire’s “personal zone!” Well, he should be wearing adequate protective equipment and standing correctly anyway! Serves him right! *g* But having played fast-pitch softball for some fifty years, I always got a secret delight in the same occurrence! Retired now, I still love softball and WISH I had one more summer under the sun…with softball! Would LOVE to have your comments. 🙂
