Lady Tigers Fastpitch Building New Home Field

January 18, 2013
Cleveland Heights, OH


Did you notice what’s happening next to Cleveland Heights High School? The Lady Tigers Fastpitch Team will be playing on their brand new field at the corner of Goodnor and Washington Roads this spring.  After years of playing at Forest Hill Park, the Softball Booster Club, with the help of Athletic Director Kristin Hughes and the CH-UH School District, broke ground in December 2012 on the new field.   After an ambitious fundraising effort, the boosters committed to Phase 1, consisting of a new backstop, dugouts, bullpens, and infield renovation. 

The team is now actively fundraising for the next phase of the project:  outfield fencing, dugout covers, and mounting a scoreboard, which was generously donated by Larry Shaw and the City of Cleveland Heights. Individuals can support our girls through a raffle to win an iPad3 ($499 value) or with a tax-deductible donation at the Reaching Heights website (www.reachingheights.org – mention “softball” in ‘Purpose’).  iPad3 tickets are $5 or 5 for $20 and are available from any softball player, at school athletic events, or by mailing a check to Cleveland Heights Fastpitch Club, 2981 Lincoln Blvd, Cleveland Heights, Ohio 44118 no later than February 15.  The iPad3 winner will be drawn at the boys’ basketball game on February 22.

Any businesses interested in purchasing outfield fence and scoreboard advertising should contact the Cleveland Heights Fastpitch Boosters Club at heightsfastpitch@gmail.com or 216.554.2002. 

The team will be led by a new head coach this season and looks to compete for the Lake Erie League crown after graduating just one player last season.  Senior pitcher Alexa Sollisch and a solid crop of returning players have been playing together in a winter league to get ready for the school season on their new home field.
