The normalization of society in South Africa, also saw separate sporting bodies unifying under one single controlling umbrella.
The three major National Softball Organizations, The South African Softball Federation (“Black”), The Softball Association of South Africa – COSAS (“White”) and the Softball Association of South Africa – SACOS (“Coloured”) as well as a coalition group, later called the The National Softball Association, met for the first time in May 1991 to initiate discussions. A daunting task lay ahead for the representatives of these four bodies, all coming from different backgrounds and cultures.
The International Softball Federation was kept informed of the progress of the unity talks. A possible disaster was averted when SASA-COSAS walked out of the talks on 2nd February 1992. A rethink saw them back on track at the succeeding meeting on the 12th April 1992. It was agreed that Regional Structures be unified by the 30th June 1992.
It was confirmed on the 24th May 1992 that the new unified National body be called “Softball South Africa”. The launch of Softball South Africa was held at the Jan Smuts Holiday Inn in Johannesburg.
