My daughter's team ran up against their highest level team and the REDS team was dominant. Really, really good. This was a couple of years ago and it was run by a guy who established a high level club years ago.

Herb still run this program? He is an outstanding guy and leader!
Yep, Herb is still the Director of Softball along with Kavin Morgan and Les Rodgers (old STATIC coaches) that still volunteer their time with the RBI teams.
Herb and Jerome are trying to reach out to young ladies that may not be able to afford softball to grow the game and improve the level of play at the HS level.. We are hoping for a decent turnout.

STATIC was the club I referenced. They teach a solid game of softball. How was the turnout?
We had 44 ladies show up from a wide range of schools. Mostly CPS schools but as far east as New Richmond West as Harrison North Lebanon and south Newport Ky. We are going to hold one more mid February. The good thing was there were about a dozen solid pitchers and catchers that we can build teams around.

Congrats and Good Luck. That program's rep is really good.
