After 33 years of devoting his life to his softball career, Reverend Billy Jemison was inducted into the 2013 Detroit Negro Slow Pitch Softball League Hall Of Fame Saturday night. He began his career with the TAMS (Together And Mighty Strong) and late played with teams like Snyder, Millie Lounge and The Love Train.
He played short shop, in-field and other various positions while earning multiple all-star and MVP awards. In 1989, Reverend Jemison devoted his life to the church serving as a deacon and May 2002 he was ordained as a minister. He currently resided in the state in which he was born and raised, Detroit.
He says “It was more than a game of softball”. The best part about playing was knowing his family was always there.
It was a pleasure attending the banquet for his induction. It is very important to support one another. There’s nothing more important in life than family. We must recognize people while their alive and it was a pleasure to witness history.
