Day One of NPF Championship Series Rained Out

August 20, 2009 - National Pro Fastpitch (NPF) - Akron Racers News Release

AKRON, Ohio - The stage was set for the NPF to display some of the best softball in the world Thursday night in Akron, Ohio with their Championship Series. Unfortunately, the league's top four teams were beat by Mother Nature. As game time approached, the clouds rolled in and a down pour ensued that washed away any hopes of playing softball.

Instead all four teams will play double headers Friday starting in the morning with the Chicago Bandits facing the USSSA Pride at 10:00 AM. Shortly following the completion of that game the Akron Racers will go head to head with the Rockford Thunder. After a short break the regular double header of softball action will begin at 6:00 PM with Akron taking on Rockford. Then the Pride and Bandits will cap off the busy day with the final game starting at approximately 8:45 PM.

Fans with tickets to Thursday's games can exchange them for Friday or Saturday passes. For ticket information contact the Akron Racers ticket office at 330-376-8188 or purchase your tickets online at www.akron racers.org
