Diamond dolls, guys back in action for fall season — UPDATED SCHEDULE

August 13, 2013

While summer will not end until next month, for all intents and purposes it really has — at least for me.
The 2013 fall high school fast-pitch softball season and baseball season will get under way this week.

All I can say is, “Let the games begin.”
Questionnaires, Team Photographs Needed
