If necessary, a rain date of Saturday, Oct. 27, has been scheduled. The game features the varsity softball team competing as an intra-squad of two teams, with the varsity coaches serving as umpires. Pitchers and catchers will play in the game from 8 to 9:30 a.m. A pitching machine will then be used for the remainder of the innings. Teams will play nine outs, clearing the bases after three outs, and the score will be kept on the softball field’s scoreboard. The fundraiser is being used to buy equipment, uniforms, tournament fees and transportation, and player gear. Players will collect pledges per inning completed or seek a flat donation for participating in the 100-inning game. Each player’s goal is to raise $250, with a team goal of $4,500. The community is welcome to attend the game at any time during the day and present a donation to the softball program.
