WHITE HOUSE – The unofficial start to the 2018 high school softball season will come on Tuesday, March 6th, when the White House Lady Devils host a six-team varsity softball jamboree. The event was postponed Monday due to rain and wet field conditions.
The event begins at 5 p.m. with admission for the entire night $4.00 per person. The jamboree will be a Pink Out, in partnership with the NFCA (National Fast-Pitch Coaches Association) Strike Out Cancer initiative.
White House will be honoring breast cancer survivors and remembering those lost to the disease with all proceeds from the gate going toward designated cancer victims currently fighting or recovering from the disease.
A special first pitch will be held for each game featuring a breast cancer survivor.
The games are exhibition and do not count in regular season standings. Games will be one hour, four innings max and teams will flip for home.
- Greenbrier Bobcats vs. Hendersonville Commandos (5 p.m.)
- White House Blue Devils vs. Springfield Yellow Jackets (6 p.m.)
