16U team in southern Wisconsin looking for players

Received a note the other day from a 16U coach who is suddenly finding himself in need of a couple more players for the 2011 season, so I told him I would pass the word along. The team is the Wisconsin Lightning, who are based out of Salem, WI on the border of Illinois and Wisconsin.

He says they have a combined 14U/16U team that plans to play at the B level in 15U or 16U. It could be a great opportunity for either a 14U or 16U player looking to have fun while playing at a competitive level.

Here are a few more details from the coach:

“We are presently @ 9 players. We practice 2-3 times a week and have our own indoor hitting/Pitching facility.  I’m not looking for “Studs” ( wouldn’t turn them down though) just girls with potential and a good work ethic”.

If that sounds like a fit for you, or someone you know, contact Pat Saltzberry at psaltzbe@gmail.com for a tryout.
