Seventy-mile per hour riseballs, 240-foot frozen ropes, soft hands and lightning-quick reactions all wound into seven feverish innings of gritty, gutsy, fast-paced action. Welcome to hard-hittin', fast-pitchin', affordable family fun. Welcome to National Pro Fastpitch! (NPF)
NPF, formerly the Women's Pro Softball League, is intended to provide family entertainment for people of all ages and to showcase the top talent in fastpitch softball today. It is the goal of the League to entertain and provide positive role models for young people. NPF demonstrates work ethic, dedication, and love for the sport of fastpitch softball. NPF athletes exhibit this through their actions, both on-and-off the field. They are prominent people within their communities and appreciate and embrace the fans that follow their play through NPF action.
Four Teams will compete in 2014 with additional teams expected in 2015 due to on-going expansion efforts. NPF is committed to building a national television schedule and finding solid partners with whom we share a common audience attraction and reach-ability. In the 2014 season, NPF action will air on television with broadcast schedule TBA. All regular season games will also be streamed live during the 2014 season and can be connected for free by selecting the link on any Team website or the League website at www.profastpitch.com. TV and live video streaming will provide consistent and measurable return for our sponsors, partners, and suppliers.
NPF is dedicated to working with partners who will commit to the effort of promoting NPF and supporting professional fastpitch softball in the United States and continues to develop and build working relationships with key fastpitch organizations such as the world’s largest amateur sports organization, USSSA. Since 2005, NPF has enjoyed the status of Official Developmental Partner of Major League Baseball.
The development partnership with Major League Baseball, the broadcast support of local and national networks, the support of industry sponsors, the experience and commitment of team owners and the exceptional talent of NPF athletes and coaches combine and point toward a future that is bright and full of promise.
