Our first softball practice of the year went great this weekend! Thanks to everyone who came out to play! We had a lot of fun taking some batting practice, fielding some infield and outfield, and playing a few mini games. A special thanks to Chris at MoveEvolve Fitness for guiding our group through stretches before we got started!

As a reminder, we’ll be holding slow pitch softball practices every Sunday in March as we get ready for our Spring season, beginning on April 8, 2018! Here are the dates, with a link to our Facebook event for each one:

Practice will be held at our home field at 223 E. Institute Dr, Durham, NC, 27703.
