ACS Softball League Takes First Swings of Season

Community submissionPrint Story | Email Story
CHESHIRE, Mass. -- Adams-Cheshire-Savoy Girls Softball kicked off its 2021 season on May 8 with a day full of games and some special first pitches.
The day started off with the first ever official softball game at the field complex in Cheshire.  ACS, in conjunction with the town of Cheshire, had been working through the fall and spring to rehabilitate a space at the field to host practices and games for the league’s players.  
On hand to mark the inaugural event was Cheshire Select Board Chair Michelle Francesconi, who tossed the ceremonial first pitch setting the season underway.
Prior to the final contest of the day at Reid Field in Adams, newly elected Adams Select board member Howard Rosenberg was on hand to fulfil his “first official order of business” by throwing out a first pitch of his own.
Rosenberg then spent some time greeting players and families along with taking in some great softball action.
“This is a great day for the players, families, and communities who work together to provide this memorable experience for the children," ACS President Lou Moser.
