JOSIE'S READY TO HIT A HOME RUN - AT WHAT AGE SHOULD THEY START?
Even at 3,4 or 5 years old, you can pitch a wiffle ball to them and see if they can hit or catch. If anything, it would increase hand/eye coordination and help in later years in any sport. I think a lot of people would be surprised to see how well a 4 or 5 year old can hit a wiffle ball with a plastic bat with only a couple days practice. In a few days they start adjusting and start to clobber the ball over your head.

LONG-TERM GOALS:

1. Get more girls of all ages involved in fastpitch softball.

2. If a local fastpitch association can be formed and can organize leagues, games and tournaments in a seven-county area, or the Section V area, there would be an organization to start in motion a master plan to build a centrally located softball complex where local leagues, sectional games, tournaments, etc. could be played. This would end the need to beg for fields, pay for fields, or kiss someones bu-- to get the use of a diamond for a few hours.
The more people who get involved, the easier it would be to build something like this. Both Buffalo and Syracuse have complexes built with public funding which are strictly for fastpitch softball!

3. Keep girls involved at all ages. Buffalo has an open league with no age limit. Females of all ages, from young girls to women who have graduated from college and have children of their own, still play in fastpitch leagues.

With Title IX and all the money spent on men's sports facilities in our area, it it is not that far-fetched to believe that a local complex could be built.
