Rain in Philly turns to ICE starting July 11th!

July 7, 2007 - National Pro Fastpitch (NPF) - New England Riptide News Release

Don't miss the New England Riptide take on the potential expansion team the Michigan Ice for a four game series beginning July 11th. Games will be Wednesday through Saturday, all starting at 7:05 PM at Martin Field in Lowell. Don't forget to get directions by visiting our website and don't miss the fun!

The Michigan Ice has a twin battery - no that is not TWO batteries but TWINS as their pitcher and catcher! No strangers to the New England area via ACC play, Miranda Ervin (catcher) and Shaina Ervin (pitcher), will look to take on another New England team. Shaina was undefeated in ACC play so she will be a force to be reckoned with.

But look for the Riptide's own answers - an outfield that is tearing up the league; a strong pitching staff; timely hitting; and valuable experience that will be looking to melt the ice.

Come on down to the ballgame and have some extra special fun while you are here! Be the lucky fan who takes the Coca Cola Zero challenge and YOU may win a brand new glove from NOKONA! Be selected to toss the Boston Beans for a Beantown Toys collectible, or race Swoopy for a chance to win passes to Chunky's Movie Theaters!
