DENVER – Major League Baseball President and CEO Robert DuPuy has sent a letter to NPF to congratulate it on an excellent first season.
“Major League Baseball is in the midst of a powerful renaissance,” DuPuy said in a letter sent to NPF. “I believe that our Official Development Partnership with the NPF has contributed to that by giving young women and their families the opportunity to see diamond sports played – and to play the games themselves.”
NPF, the world’s premier professional fastpitch softball league for women, consists of six teams located throughout the United States and features former USA Softball Women’s National Team members, collegiate All-Americans and all-conference selections. The 2004 season has featured the inaugural NPF All-Star Game, the first-ever NPF Championship Semifinal and the first NPF Championship Series.
National Pro Fastpitch is headquartered in Denver, and has been in operation since 1997 under the names Women’s Pro Fastpitch (WPF) and Women’s Pro Softball League (WPSL).
