    I have two daughters (twins) that have April 01 birthdays that would like to play in this league.

    2B and 1B are best positions but are currently playing SS and 3B. One can pitch if needed and one can catch as well.

    We do not put teams together, but I will keep my ears open for teams looking for players for this league. Thank you for your interest! I hope to see you here!

    This might be a cyclical question, but is anyone else offended by the only pro fastpitch league in the country playing on grass infields? I turned on the Bandits game today and they are playing on grass and there aren't even cutouts at the bases or at the pitching circle.

    They were probably playing in PA.

    The PA team is owned by some people who own a minor league baseball team which is probably a pretty good idea. When the baseball team is away you can have home games, bring in some money from a stadium that would normally be sitting empty, and I get to watch a pro fastpitch game.

    I think the field is turf, too. Probably not much chance of changing it up unless it really takes off there.

    I'm really surprised that more minor league baseball teams aren't doing this. I don't care if its grass, turf I just want to see more pro-girls Fastpitch teams playing.

    I think this would be one of the best ways of market the game to the general public.

    I really do believe that if you can the minor league fans to support the game it would surpass minor league ball in fan support from the general public.

    What if some of the MLB teams with NPF teams close by had an NPF game immediately after some of their weekend afternoon games ... in effect, a doubleheader? They couldn't do it beforehand because the baseball team needs to have BP and get the field ready, but right after their games they could put in some temp bases and a pitching rubber, and maybe even a temp fence. They could hand out programs to everyone who stuck around, put the player's pics and stats on the scoreboard, etc. The admission would be free but my guess is they'd bring in some extra fans and could keep open concessions. If you took your daughter or granddaughter to the MLB game, you'd want to stick around for the women's game, right?

    The field at Consol Energy Park is Washington is def turf. What they do for the Rebellion is take the baseball mound out and put the softball mound in. Considering some of the fields I have seen them play on this is def not one of the worst by any means.
     
  17. I am just happy it was on tv. Hopefully more appropriate fields in the future.
