Athletic League runs a girls fast pitch softball league that gives
nearly 300 girls the chance to participate in a fun and healthy team
sport every summer in Fall River. Teams are organized for 5-8 year-olds
playing t-ball, 8-11 in Junior B, 11-13 in Junior A, and 14-18 in Senior
levels. Games are played at Ruggles Park, Pulaski Park and Talbot Middle
School for t-ball. Everyone plays. League organizer Dan Ferreira sees
the league as an excellent opportunity for young girls to move into
college level softball where scholarships are becoming more available.
