ARLINGTON, Texas - The UT Arlington softball team hosted a clinic for the Arlington Girls Softball Association Thursday.
The clinic ran for two hours and the Mavericks ran drills and played games with the girls ranging in age from 4-16.
“They were simply the best,” Michael McQuatters, president of AGSA said about the team. “Everyone was extremely great and the girls had a great time.”
The event took place at Vandergrif Park in Arlington and about 100 girls were able to attend the event along with several parents.
The Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball team will take on the Fellowship of Christian Athletes All-Star team in a slowpitch game in Fort Worth on Sept. 29 at LaGrave Field. The gates open at 11:00 a.m. and will feature a home run derby at 12:00 p.m. followed by a doubleheader starting at 1:00 p.m. Among the many talented athletes and honorable military members in attendance will be UT Arlington’s own assistant softball coach, Meagan Denny-White.
"The softball program here at UT Arlington feels it's important to give back to the community," Fox said. "We truly feel our team and our sport can have a positive impact and set an example. We have great student athletes and I want to make sure the community gets to know these young ladies and that our players know exactly who they represent and who they play for."
