Recap of NPF Clinic in Philadelphia

Nashville – This past Saturday, June 2nd, future pros of National Pro Fastpitch took the field in Philadelphia. Youth softballers were given the opportunity to cultivate their skills and techniques with the help of past players from the League. Joined by NPF, the Philadelphia Phillies hosted the annual Youth Softball Celebration in Philadelphia for what was the seventh consecutive year that both sides have come together to open up the ballpark to young softball players.

“It is a community outreach program and a great endeavor for NPF and MLB.” commented Christy Bingham, Special Event Coordinator for NPF. “Anytime the NPF can get out in the inner-city and help develop children in the sport they love, it’s a good thing. What’s greater than that?”

Youth softball teams and players from the local area came out to start their day at a softball clinic held at the FDR Park softball fields. The clinic allowed participants to polish their skills in hitting, catching, defense, and base running thanks to former NPF players Dorian Shaw, Trena Peel, Aubree Brattin and support from the Phillies staff.

During the evening, the clinic shifted over to Citizen’s Bank Park to help celebrate softball at a Phillies game against the Miami Marlins. Part of the festivities included a parade on the major league field for all softball participants and a dance atop the dugouts alongside the Philly Phanatic for a chosen few. While other events took place throughout the game to support the special celebration of softball, NPF players also entertained the crowd during several innings while dancing and performing skits with the Philly Phanatic.

The 2012 National Pro Fastpitch regular season opens on Thursday June 7. The regular season consists of 88 total games. The season culminates with a Championship Series that takes place in Rosemont, IL August 23-26.
