The 2011 National Softball Association Girls Fast Pitch “B” World Series will be held in Hamilton County, Indiana, from July 25 to July 30. More than 265 teams will participate, ranging in age from 8 to 16. A total of 4,000 athletes are expected.
Why should you be one of the anticipated 12,000 spectators for the games, which will be played all over southern Hamilton County? Here are two good reasons:
If you have a daughter, niece, granddaughter or cousin between the age of 6 to 17, chances are good that she is playing softball. There are more than 16 million softball players in the United States, both slowpitch and fastpitch. What’s more, fastpitch softball is the third most popular high school girls sport behind basketball and track and field. If you have a softball player in the house, it is worth bringing her to see some of the best young fastpitch softball players in action.
Teams from New York to Wisconsin, from Missouri to Ontario, Canada are coming to play. Indiana is well represented at the tournament too with teams from Crown Point, Munster, South Bend, Indianapolis, Warsaw, Terre Haute, Carmel, Fishers and Noblesville among others.
