Bobby Sox Fastpitch Softball
True to its motto of “Citizenship, Friendship, Leadership, Sportsmanship, Scholarship,” Bobby Sox Fastpitch Softball is committed to giving all girls the freedom and opportunity to play softball – with the aim of molding them into better citizens. Bobby Sox’s unsung heroes, founders William Honaker and Everett Skillings, devoted the final years of their lives building a strong foundation for the organization by establishing administrative guides and playing rules.
Innovations unique to Bobby Sox include a draw system that enables a girl to be placed on a team without having to try out; and ruling out of player drafts and trading. Bobby Sox also requires team managers to be women, and a gender-balanced board of directors.
