The NPF All-Stars Continue Southern Swing

ATLANTA, GA. - The Atlanta Braves will host the National Pro Fastpitch All-Stars here Saturday (July 5) at Turner Field as the powerful line up of top female fastpitch players participate in the Major League Baseball team's Baseball 101 for Women, presented by Publix Super Markets.

The NPF All-Stars will be at Turner Field for events surrounding the Braves' game Saturday with the Montreal Expos. Baseball 101, the Braves' five-year old program for adult women, will feature the NPF All-Stars participating in a late morning and early afternoon session followed by a "Meet & Greet" gathering and pre-game introductions.

With 4 p.m. (EDT) game set Sunday at Frost Stadium in Chattanooga, Tenn., against the East Cobb All-Stars, the NPF All-Stars will conclude their southern trip by appearing Monday in Duluth, Ga., for a Hardball Warehouse clinic and appearance. The NPF All-Stars started their southern trip with an appearance Wednesday in Miami at Pro Player Stadium before the Braves' game with the Florida Marlins.

Led pitcher Amy Kyler (Cleveland State) and third-baseman Jaime Foutch
(Oklahoma State), the 2003 NPF All-Stars feature collegiate All-Americans from Arizona, Arizona State and other top schools. The Atlanta stop will be a homecoming of sort for NPF All-Stars Venus Taylor, who is a former assistant coach at Georgia Tech.

In addition to posting a 9-2 record in games in California, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Colorado this season, the NPF All-Stars have hosted clinics and made appearances at Major League Baseball games in San Francisco, Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Denver and Miami.

Official league play is scheduled to begin early summer, 2004.

"We've assembled a great group of top-notch athletes for our All-Star team and we're excited about the competition we'll meet while on tour. Our partnership with Major League Baseball gives us a great opportunity to bring fastpitch action to baseball and softball fans alike and really show what women can do on the diamond," said Rich Levine, President and CEO of National Pro Fastpitch.
