As most softball players are relaxing and enjoying their offseason, it seems that the Waldron Lady Bulldogs Softball Team is just as busy as when they are in season if not busier. Over the course of three days from July 30-August 1, the Lady Bulldogs held their annual Orange and Black Softball Scrimmage. Every year the girls get 10 $10 sponsors to back them in their three day 30 inning fundraiser. The money is used to help fund tournaments and to help with equipment and uniforms. All of the money raised goes only for the softball team.
The Lady Bulldogs heavily rely on this fundraiser and although it has already passed, it’s never too late to give a monetary donation to help ensure that the Waldron softball program continues to grow and succeed. “The ladies did a great job,” exclaims Head Coach, Bailey More. “I saw lots of improvement. We had a great time and can’t wait to do it again next year. The parents served supper and the girls showed off some dance moves in between innings.”
“We had some younger (future) bulldog softball players come out to see what all of the fun was about too. Thank you to everyone who donated to our fundraiser!” After taking the weekend off, the Lady Bulldogs were right back at it again on August 5 as they hosted their Softball Skills Camp.
Around 20 girls grades 4-8 showed up to get some one-on-one field time action with their beloved Lady Bulldogs. The campers were separated into two groups and taught fun and informative drills and skills in such areas as hitting, catching, and fielding. Coach Bailey had this to say about the evening, “This camp was beneficial all the way around. These girls are the future of this program so you have current bulldogs passing on their knowledge to future bulldogs.”
“I have an awesome high school squad who always steps up and takes on the challenge of helping the younger players and I am so blessed for that. The camp was a small fundraiser for the girls but more than that it was a way to show our support to our younger bulldogs and give them some pointers that hopefully, they can use in their upcoming seasons.”
“We hope to make this camp an annual event and build our numbers with each year! The Lady Bulldog softball team would like to thank everyone who came out including helpers and players. We are truly blessed with a great community!”
