Starting the 2020 Season, softball will be joining the Mason Dixon Recreation Fastpitch Softball League.  This league includes several recreation councils within our area including, Hampstead, Finksburg, Westminister, North Carroll, Mt. Airy, Reisterstown, and the Hereford Zone.

Games will be played inside and outisde of the Hereford Zone at participating rec council fields.   Games will begin at 6:30pm unless previously arranged at a different time between the opposing coaches and will last 90 minutes.

Based on overall registration nubers between the four programs (5th District, Sparks, Prettyboy, and 7th District), combined teams may be formed with players from more than one recreation council in order to field enough teams in a given age bracket. This could affect a baseball and softball player's practice location.
