Monica Abbott to appear at Monte Vista softball clinic

I wanted to pass along the word to all the softball fans out there that one of the nation’s top pitchers, Monica Abbott, will be making an appearance at Monte Vista High’s softball clinic on Feb. 12.

Abbott, a NorCal native who won a silver medal with Team USA at the 2008 Olympics, will speak about softball around 11:30 a.m. then sign autographs. The clinic is for girls ages 8-12, but coaches and others can observe the clinic and see Abbott for a small fee.

For more on the clinic or to sign up, go to Monte Vista’s softball website at montevistasoftball.com.
