MARIANNA, Fla- Softball players and fans alike got a treat this weekend at Chipola College. 4 professional, and Olympic softball players are in town putting on a two day softball clinic for young ladies at Chipola College.
It's the first ever Triple Threat softball camp held in the area. Professional players, Cat Osterman, Caitlin Lowe, Charlotte Morgan, and Kelly Kretschman are teaching the fundamentals of the game to girls all of all ages. Osterman, Lowe, Morgan and Krestchamn all play for the United States Specialty Sports Association, or USSSA, Pride.
They are also well known for playing college softball, and in the Olympics. They made the trip to town to give their knowledge to over 150 softball players from around the Panhandle.
"We just like to interact with the young generations of softball players, we like to pass on the knowledge that we have so far." Osterman said. "Alot of times we wished we would have had someone teaching us these things at an early age. It took us to get to college or the pros to learn little things that you could be doing to become a better athlete. We like to have fun, we interact with them, we break down mechanics of the game. we just try to give back to the game everything we've received so far."
The camp will continue Sunday with pitching and defensive work on the schedule. The professionals will also give some advice to the Chipola softball team before leaving town. The defending state champion Lady Indians are set to start their season in a week.
