Steve McCauley managed, coached and sponsored championship women’s slow pitch teams for 28 years before retiring in 2013.  Steve got his first taste of winning a national title in 1984 while coaching and sponsoring Aero Battery, which captured a USSSA B championship.  He proudly calls that accomplishment his greatest thrill as a team manager, as Aero lost its first game of the tournament, then rallied to win eleven straight games.  Steve’s Salem Hawks team from Detroit finished runner-up in the USSSA Class A World Series in 1991 and ’92, then two years later with Cannan Illusions of San Antonio, Tx., he won the first of six USSSA World Series crowns.  Cannan repeated in 1996 and ’97.  For eight of the next eleven years, Steve sponsored and coached or managed Kinder Sharks of Cincinnati, sitting out the 2006, ’07 and ’11 seasons.  From 2000-‘05, the Sharks won three World Series, then tacked on another title in 2009 and runner-up finishes in ’08 and ’10.  Other highlights in Steve’s career included coaching and sponsoring three-time USSSA Black American World Series Champions Aero Battery from 1994-‘96.  In addition to his nine USSSA World Series titles, he has five runner-up finishes.
