Since the late 1980s, softball has seen a decline in professional participants nationwide. From its hayday 31 million to 19.7 million in 2000, a 36.5% decrease has been seen. What used to be one of the top ten sports, is now considered the 25th most popular sports and fitness activity. A large contributing factor to this shift is corporate sponsorship and contributors that invest in the teams and logos, while sacrificing team camaraderie. As a result, teams disassemble that are not considered to be in the equal class. To keep the love of softball and its spirit high, the following softball team slogans used throughout this era are meant to inspire sportsmanship and fun.
