Softball news and notes

I got out to my first softball game of the year yesterday and saw Freedom beat Foothill 3-1. Freedom is good. I mean, really good. Foothill isn’t there quite yet but you can see that given some time, Matt Sweeney will have those girls ready for the league season and possibly a postseason run.

Today, the Queen of the Mountain kicks off at Willow Pass Park in Concord. I’m headed out to tonight’s 6:45 game between Amador Valley and Berkeley and I’ll be there all three days. Should be a great weekend of softball.

Now, I won’t have live updates but I’ll try to give a recap of the day at the end of each day. Also, we’re going to have live updates from the state basketball championships here on the East Bay Prep Sports Blog on Saturday so I don’t want to mess with that. Anyway, I should have more to follow later tonight.

    Curious what you think about a girl’s softball team like Berkeley running up a score of 39-0 on a less fortunate team like Richmond. My opinion is it doesn’t show a lot of class.
