The Softball Coaching Meeting will be at Citizen?s Central (617 Central Ave) Hall on Thursday, May 4th at 6pm. With team practices starting the week of May 8th. This league is our most advanced league. The primary focus is the flow of the game from batting and fielding. In this league we encourage batters to swing on the right pitch and have a complete understanding of balls, strikes, and foul situations. Fielding, both ground balls and fly balls, is important in this league as we want players to work to understand the best situation in getting outs. This league requires some individuals who want to pitch and commit ample practice time to the art of pitching
*In order to make a request, we only allow two players to request each other, i.e. Susie request to be with Morgan, and Morgan request to be with Susie. We will no longer accept any other type of request as it creates rosters and draws away from what our Recreation programs are all about.
Each participant will be required to wear pants or shorts with sliders. Also, each player must supply their own hat to wear under a batters helmet.
