Mare Island Fillies Night on August 6
The Vallejo Admirals will honor the Mare Island Fillies on Tuesday, August 6 prior to their game with the Sonoma Stompers at Wilson Park.
The Mare Island Fillies were a women's softball team representing the Mare Island Naval Shipyard during World War II.
The Admirals will wear replica Mare Island Fillies jerseys which will be auctioned off during the game with all proceeds going to the Vallejo Police Athletic League. Fifty percent of ticket sales will also go to the Vallejo PAL.
Local high school softball pitchers will pitch to Vallejo Admirals players before the game. Players from St. Patrick-St. Vincent, Vallejo and Jesse Bethel high schools are scheduled to pitch.
The night is sponsored by Mare Island Brewing Company and the Law Offices of Dana Dean. Game time is 6:35 p.m. Come out to Wilson Park and help honor these Pioneers!
