OLIVE PARK—For months, players from the Burbank Park, Recreation and Community Services Department Ponytail Softball league have been busy taking part in competition.
With victories and division championships at stake, the athletes worked hard to better themselves, and their teams.
However, Saturday at Olive Park, the players were able to relax a little and have some fun, as they celebrated the ending of another successful season with the annual Ponytail Softball Jamboree, sponsored by the Foothill Civitan Club.
Like their Hap Minor Baseball counterparts the week before, the softball players invaded the park for their traditional skills
competition, food, refreshments.
The day began with a parade to Olive Park for the annual skills competition and awards ceremony. In
the skills competition, players took part in four events—hitting for distance; throwing for accuracy; baserunning and throwing for distance—and won awards for their accomplishments.
