Manuel Ferrero III

Commissioner, International Slow Pitch Softball

Manuel T. Ferrero III started Florida Adult Softball (FAS), with some friends and family, as a small six-team slow pitch league in Miami, Florida, in honor of his brother who was killed in action in Baqubah, Iraq, during Operation Iraqi Freedom. In 2011, when Puerto Rico got affiliated, Ferrero created International Slow Pitch Softball to help bring and promote the sport of slow pitch around the world. ISPS is now hosting slow-pitch programs in many states and countries and continues to expand and grow the sport of slow pitch around the globe.
