Norm Stafford was involved in slow pitch softball in a managing, coaching and sponsoring role for 40 years before retiring in 2015. His powerhouse Senior and Men’s Major teams included an impressive list of names, including Planet Softball (1992-‘95) and Chase/Reece (1996-’02) at the Men’s Major level, and Stafford Sales (2002-‘05) and OKI (2010-‘15) in the Senior program.  Norm’s former players who have been inducted into local and national Hall of Fames is extensive.  His most exciting moment came in 2002 when his Chase/Reece team won the USSSA Super Major Championship in Sanford, Florida.  Norm continued his softball success at the 50 plus level, claiming an NSA 50 Major Plus World Championship with Stafford Sales in 2003 before collecting five more titles with OKI.  Those included three consecutive SPA 50 Major Plus World titles in 2011, ‘12 and ‘13, and back-to-back ISA 50 Major Plus World championships in 2011 and 2012.  In 2011, 2012 and 2013, Norm was named the SPA Manager of the Year.
