  • One to three practices per week outdoors from April to July.

Big Red is a non-profit competitive girls' fastpitch organization sponsored by the Mentor Girls Softball League. Teams are ASA and USSSA sanctioned. Coaches are ASA/ACE certified and have passed a background check. The mission of Mentor Big Red is to provide a safe, competitive, and fun environment for girls to learn and enjoy the game of fastpitch softball. Our dedicated coaches and volunteers facilitate the growth of our young athletes through skill development, and by promoting hard work, integrity, confidence, sportsmanship, teamwork, and commitment to excellence.


 
BAT RULE IN AFFECT
for
ADULT CO-ED and FAST PITCH DIVISIONS
All players in the Adult Co-Ed and Fast Pitch divisions must bat with a USSSA approved bat. Bats will be checked by the USSSA Umpires. An easy way to identify the approved bat is that it will have the 1.20 BPF USSA thumbprint (pictured below) stamped on the taper of the bat. The Mentor Girls Softball League does not supply these bats.
