Major League Women's Fastpitch Softball at Foothills Stadium
Game 1 of the three game series between the NPF Diamonds and the USSSA Pride finished this evening at Foothills Stadium with the Pride taking the win 6-5. With the Diamonds being a traveling team it has given the chance for Calgary to witness the National Pro Fastpitch league (formerly the Women’s Pro Softball League) up close. The evening attendance was 1,048 fans, well beyond the anticipated turnout. Given the action of the game and the stellar performance by both teams (several of the players also play on the US and Canadian Olympic teams), I wouldn’t be surprised if the next couple nights have similar crowds. The teams will also be playing Wednesday and Thursday (August 3rd and 4th, 2011), so make sure you see it while it’s here!
