USED EUIPMENT:
Please go through your closets, ball bags, etc to see if you have equipment your child might not be using or has outgrown for the year. We really want to make softball affordable for everyone, so if you are willing to sell items inexpensively or to give, please post here or on our Face Book page. We want this to be an option every year for our old and new players.
