< Mighty Mike's Bio

A quick Bio/Profile of the Big Cat won't take long. If you like slo-pitch softball then you might know who I am. If you don't then hopefully from surfing through my web page you might like the website that I have put together over the last 20 years.

I enjoyed playing this great game of slo-pitch softball and I tried to play with the same effort and enthusiasm every time I took the field. Always wanted to give 110 percent and I believed that when you got excited at the ball park there was no telling what might happen on the field...

My name Mike Macenko is a name that is pretty known around the world and across this nation when it comes to softball. I played softball for over 27 years, 26 of which were on the Super Level of softball. In 26 years of Big-Time softball I accomplished just about everything there was. From winning numerous National Championships to leading the country in home runs. From hitting softballs out of Major League Baseball Stadiums like Detroit, Seattle Kingdome, Mile High Stadium, Oakland Coliseum and Municipal Stadium in Cleveland, Ohio to being named to All American teams 34 times.

I am listed in the Guiness Book Of World Records for my achievements in the game of slopitch softball. It was in 1987 when they put my name in there book for hitting the most home runs in a single season... The wild part about all of the accompishments that I have, I really believe that I could have hit over 1000 home runs in that one season... I was swinging the bat real good but towards the end of the season I did slack off some...

I have worked with your top notch Sporting Goods Companies like Steele's Sports Co.,TPS (Louisville Slugger), Worth, and I joined forces with Nike, Inc. to help them promote their new softball / baseball program in 1998, thru 2003..I have played all over the this country promoting the great game of softball and all over Canada. I was fortunate enough that I started playing softball right at the top.. I am asked the question all the time, how do you get on a Major Softball team. For me it was being involved with the right people and at the right moment... From Lakewood's Madison Park where I was asked to particpate in the biggest arena atmosphere entering the Home Run Derby with all of the top 50 hitters in the City of Cleveland... Former Brook Park Mayor Tom Coyne asked me to play on his team at 16 years old? As a 17 year old kid from Brook Park I stunned the players and fans from Cleveland with my poweful stroke with a softball bat.... That is how it all started in 1975.....
