Seeking select softball players

Hi, This is Scott Herman, head softball coach at Oakwood High School. I want to tell you about some girls that are playing select softball that will surely have an impact on Oakwood softball in the future.

The girls are working hard and are improving their game, but most of all, they are having fun and enjoying the game. The great thing about softball is you can start playing at an older age. There are different levels of play where girls can start playing. E.K.R.C. and K.A.B. C. are two leagues out of Kettering that support that. We have select teams in place if you want to take your game to a higher level.

If anyone is interested in pitching lessons, my email address is
