Sello Molotsane, nicknamed “Harare”, is a softball legend in the City, calls Kwa-Thema home.
His love for softball dates back to 1974, when he joined a team that used to play the sport in Tlakula High School.
‘’I started playing softball when I was a young boy in 1974 and went on to become the captain, winning several accolades. What I liked most in softball was a culture of teasing one another which always brought laughter and happiness in players and people watching the matches,” Molotsane said.
The father of four is still active and now plays for master’s team Flames. Not only is he a player, but Molotsane is heavily involved in softball development in the City.
Through funding from Lottery, who funded all his equipment, Harare managed to start junior softball teams in areas such as Duduza, Tsakani, Thokoza, Vosloorus, Thembisa and Kwa-Thema, and as a result an under 10 league was established.
Molotsane is a qualified level four international umpire, and an international senior evaluator of the softball umpires in Africa.
