Thanks to the Fans

One of the things I admire about the NPF is the time the players put into autographs at the end of a game.  Oh sure, it's something the league office and teams want the players to do.  However, after watching the players interact with their fans, sign autographs and pose for photos, I think the post game autograph session is a great part of the season. It becomes that up close and personal experience for each NPF fan and player to finally meet.

I am sure some players enjoy signing autographs more than others.  But, where would they be without their fans?  Where would the league be without their fans?  Fans are one of the main reasons the league is celebrating it's 10 year anniversary this year.

If you are a fan of the NPF, thank you for supporting the most exciting women's team sport in the country.  For the players, thank you for having the knowledge and understanding  that you are a role model and that these fans do admire all that you go through as you lead the way for the growth of Pro Fastpitch.

  1. I went to my first game EVER to see Cat Osterman pitch against the Dallas Charge here in Dallas. I went to see Cat pitch and became a huge fan. I love that you can meet the players after the games and they were all so nice. I felt a little out of place being a guy, but none of them did anything other than make me feel welcome and many of them thanked me for coming to my first game. I'm headed to my third game in just a few minutes, to see the the Racers take on the Charge. It was fun and I look forward to meeting some more players tonight. I'm on twitter at bsnider_22.
    Thanks for a great article.
