The Drumheller Girls Softball Association (DGSA) has begun putting their leather gloves, bats, and cleats to good use as the softball season starts to ramp up.
The Town of Drumheller promised to let the teams on to the diamonds in Newcastle on Tuesday, May 1.
One of the two U14 teams has a double header scheduled for Sunday on Diamond 1.
Kent Jensen, DGSA president, explained the Newcastle Beach Diamonds had seen better days before the flood but the diamond that was not affected will be used for the time being.
The year is stacking up to be a good one in his eyes.
“I’m pretty confident that it’s going to be an excellent year again,” said Jensen.
The U16 opted out of regular league play to compete in tournaments this year where they hope their hard will work will pay off at provincials. Both U14 teams are planning on attending provincials as well.
The association is in desperate need of umpires in the area for games. Each person interested is asked to pay $100 to the Red Deer Umpires Association then the DGSA will reimburse them.
