Our ladies’ senior softball team, the Sun Lakes Sluggers, opened their season in early January. The Sluggers play in the Valley of the Sun League which includes teams from throughout the Valley. The season continues through late February. Due to a scheduling quirk, most of the late season games are away games; however, there is a home game on Wednesday, February 6, at the Field of Dreams. Doubleheaders are scheduled for both of those dates with the first pitch scheduled for noon. Come out to the field and support our ladies’ team.

We’ll provide wrap-up coverage of the Sluggers’ season in next month’s Splash. In the meantime, check out our website ( for up-to-date news.
