Amanda had an amazing time for a couple of years, playing softball with a great bunch of ladies from around the region. At bat or on third base, she loved getting out there and playing hard.
Here's how it looked at the end of the 2011 season when the Demons had their best-ever finish:
She had to stop mid-season when we found out she was pregnant. Then Amanda couldn't play last year because she was very sick from chemotherapy. This year, she's heading to London to continue her cancer treatment and be near family.
Her team, the Demons, is arranging a one-day tournament to get some great players out onto the field, show some love, and raise a few bucks. You can click the image to see the details.
In text, here are the details:
We are hosting a fundraising tourney June 7 at the Three Villages ball fields.
