women’s softball Brakettes open 73rd season Saturday
The Stratford Brakettes open their 73rd consecutive season Saturday at Frank DeLuca Hall of Fame Field in Stratford at 7 p.m. against their first-year 18U team the Junior Brakettes. All youth softball players, accompanied by an adult, will be admitted free of charge to all regular-season home games played by both teams.
The two teams will also meet Sunday in another doubleheader at 10 a.m., while the Junior Brakettes have an added attraction when they face the Irish National Team at 4 p.m. in a single game at DeLuca.
“We are committed to promoting softball,” Brakettes General Manager Bob Baird said. “The best way for these young players to learn the game is from watching it played at the highest level.”
