Women’s softball season delayed again

The local women’s softball season usually gets underway in mid May but this year like all other sports activities it had been been put on hold due to restrictions imposed because of the Covid-19 Pandemic.

The recent easing of those restrictions opened the door to get the season going and Medina Women’s Softball League officials had slated July 6 as the date for the opening evening doubleheaders.

The league is looking to play a six week long regular season. Teams would play doubleheaders each week and there would be no playoffs this season.

The league is looking to have as many as 13 teams this season. Traditionally the league has split up its teams into two divisions for regular season competition.

However, the start of the season has once again been put on hold this time as the league awaits clearance from the national softball governing body the United States Slo-Pitch Softball Association (USSSA).

“We aren’t starting softball yet,” said League President Kathy Riggs-Allen. “USSSA hasn’t given clearance for us to start so we are postponed until further notice!”
