MANDAN SOFTBALL ASSOCIATION SUPPORT
MANDAN SOFTBALL ASSOCIATION SUPPORT FOR MANDAN FASTPITCH
MANDAN, N.D. – The Mandan Softball Association hosted a tournament in May, during which they sold extra homeruns and donated 50% of those sales to Mandan Park District’s youth fastpitch program. The Softball Association raised a total of $1,900 and donated an additional $1,000 for a total donation of $2,900! The money went directly toward purchasing equipment, including tanner tees and pitching machines, for our fastpitch program.
Mandan Park District has seen substantial growth in its 2018 Youth Girl’s fastpitch program. This is the first year the park district offered two different sections of fastpitch split between ages 6-8 and 9-14. Adding a new section allowed younger girls to learn the game, and the program has grown from 47 participants in 2017 to 83 participants in 2018. The 8U teams play intersquad games this first season, and we have 3 10 & under teams and 2 11 & up teams that play league games at the Fort Lincoln Field and in Bismarck. We plan to continue to offer two fastpitch sections and we hope to see the program continue to grow!
Thank you, Mandan Softball Association for your donation to this exciting program!
