Nakusp Softball League gets ready to bring it home

Zac Wethal has organized seven teams into a schedule of league play.

Nakusp’s softball season is underway in Nakusp with seven teams vying to dethrone last year’s league champions, the Brew Jays.

Working with Slow Pitch Society president Ryan Struck, Zac Wethal has organized seven teams into a schedule of league play that started on May 21 and continues every Monday and Wednesday night right into the July 21  playoffs.

There is a short break, and then those interested teams will be primed and ready to tackle the infamous marathon of action during the long weekend softball tournament on August 28.

Softball players and spectators may have noticed that the backstop on the Kathy Penderson field has been upgraded thanks to the efforts of the Softball Society.

Wethal noted that the backstop on the field would not have been made possible without support from local businesses and volunteers.

The league would like to acknowledge Home Hardware for help with supplies, Brisco for donating the poles, Cresent Bay Construction for use of their equipment, Frank Zobel for his crane work contribution and all of the volunteers who donated their time and skills to make the construction happen.
