Ladies Softball Coming to MRH
Fall season softball is coming to Maplewood Richmond Heights in 2018, following action by the Board of Education Thursday night.
MRH Athletics Director Amber Jordan pitched the program at the board's September meeting. Board members made quick work of approving the plan with a unanimous vote.
The approximate cost to get softball off the ground is just under $11,000 to cover the purchase of bats, balls, catcher equipment, uniforms, plus league and tournament fees. Games would take place on diamonds at either Deer Creek Park or Ryan Hummert Park.
Jordan says the ladies' softball season will run concurrently with volleyball and cross country in Class 2 of the Missouri State High School Activities Association. When the program is in place, MRH will offer 6 male sports and 6 female sports.
Softball will be varsity only in its first year.
