Hundreds of Softball Players Kick of Spring Season in Murrieta on 'Like-New' Fields

In November, the league approached Councilman Lane to take a look at the fields and bathroom conditions which had no upkeep in years. Lane and the council listened to the concerns, and helped fix the facilities.

The following was submitted for publication by the Murrieta Valley Girls Softball Association: 

On February 22nd approximately 500 softball players ranging in ages from 4-19 and their families kicked off the 2014 spring softball season in Murrieta.  This marks the 20th year that Murrieta Valley Girls Softball Association (MVGSA) has brought young girls in our community together for the love of the sport. 


A surprise to many girls was the special appearance of Thunder, Lake Elsinore’s Storm mascot who paraded on the field and danced with the line-ups.  Opening day activities included a family fun zone with jumpers and bounce houses, rock wall, face-painting, concessions, and several vendors.


What made this opening season more of a celebration was the fact that these young girls would be playing on like-new fields.  In November, the league approached Councilman Lane to take a look at the fields and bathroom conditions which have had no upkeep in years.


“Councilman Lane listened and showed genuine concern over our cries to have the same safer field conditions and bathrooms as the boys who play at Los Alamos,” said Roxanne Rountree, MVGSA Publicity Director.  “He backed us at full Council which ultimately led to our conditions being improved, and for that we are very thankful.” 


Councilman Lane was honored at Opening Ceremonies with an encased and signed softball from the league and recognized the MVGSA Board of Directors for its diligence in getting the fields fixed.


The spring season will run through May.  For more information and schedule of upcoming games, visit www.mvgsa.com or www.Facebook/MurrietaValleyGirlsSoftball
