BROOKINGS, S.D. – About 25 years ago, men’s fastpitch disappeared in Brookings, South Dakota. Now Clint Dale is trying to revive the sport. He started men’s program last fall and picked up a dozen interested players.
He’s using that momentum to try and start a summer league.
“Last fall,” said Dale, “I tried to get people to show up for five weeks and hoped to have pick-up games each week. We will be starting May 12 again, and so far we have 22 people that want to play. I’m hoping to turn that into a four-team league next year.”
As with many progressive program coordinators starting something new, Dale is seeking advice from those in the know about how to start or revive a men’s fastpitch program:
“If you have any additional tips or advice, I would love to hear it,” Dale said. “Thanks so much!”
