El Rio Fastpitch held their opening ceremonies Saturday afternoon at Juhan Park. Down to four teams, the new board is hoping to revive the proud member of the Baja Fastpitch organization that includes Oro Valley, Sahuaro, Las Niñas, Tanque Verde and Northwest.
Incoming president Valerie Valencia introduced the new board to the parents and the players were introduced. The program is still looking for more sponsors to help rebuild. Please call 520 907-7797 for more information.
