Indy Sportz Film Fest Experience
…The filmmakers have crafted a compelling story about one of the fast-growing populations in North America. This film about seniors is important in a society that can be seen to devalue its elders. It interweaves the theme of sports with issues of aging and health. It shows us that we can enjoy life and have fun playing sports at any time in our lives.”
Former USSSA OHC/OHS State Director and National Youth Slow-Pitch Director
I will share with you that the seniors have a special love of the game which is unique and very apparent. Yet, I worry that we’ve not well shared the history of the game with the younger generations…The Fall League movie tells the story eloquently.
These players have a respect for the game, for each other, and an appreciation for the opportunity to still play… “
The Fall League documentary shows the fun and love of senior slow-pitch. At our age, playing ball is truly a gift … (we) get to be on our field of dreams, flashing back to how we felt as kids. Everyone is a winner and enjoys the spirit of the game. I’ve met a whole bunch of world-class friends and acquaintances in this League, and I’m glad the movie is here to share this legacy. Anyone who plays senior ball – or hopes to – should watch this film.”

The Fall League! What a great job by Jennifer Taylor, Tim Gebard and Taller Trees Productions! This film will truly encourage senior softball in the USA.”

I am sorry that it has taken me so long to write and thank you for The Fall League production. Judie and I watched it a few days ago and of course I watched it a couple of more times. The quality of the production was fantastic. The Fall League captured most every aspect of my feelings about Senior Softball.
If you will indulge me for a moment, I would like to tell you what a miracle Senior ball has been for me. I am a recovering alcoholic with a little over 20 years of continuous sobriety. I started playing senior softball twenty years ago. There is a connection.
For me, the fellowship of the players is why I am here. There is an unknown magic that happens when we get together for practice, games and tournaments. There is an atmosphere of loyalty to your team and at the same time, a feeling of gratitude for just being on the field. I am in Mesa, Arizona for the winter and playing a lot of senior ball … this is our seventh year doing this. The magic that I mentioned is alive and well out here.
I recall many occasions when I would get upset with an umpire’s call or another players conduct. Then I came back to reality and realized…..I AM A KID AGAIN!! Wow….I am doing what I did when I was ten years old. It just does not get any better than that.
I hope you know just how much you and the production staff are appreciated. I am sharing The Fall League with everyone…”
