Women’s Elite Hitters Club

For everyone who has ever been to Lyons Field the first experience is usually similar whether that first visit is as a fan, coach, or player. As they walk up to Lyons Field they quickly notice the large green scoreboard, they admire the beauty of the lush green outfield grass and the fine artwork displayed in chalk on the infield. The smell of delicious food cooking in the foodstand sweeps through the air bringing on a sense of comfort. Then the first encounter takes a twist as the fan, coach, or player visiting Lyons Field for the first time notices that the outfield fence is a distant 265 feet from home plate, easily one of the deepest fences found in fastpitch softball! To pitchers this serves as a security blanket to mistake pitches, to hitters its the ultimate challenge. Sure over the 25 plus years, and thousands of games a couple hundred or so softballs have ventured over the outfield fence set 265 feet away, but everyone of these softballs was off the bat of a man. Not one off the bat of a female.

The fans of Lyons Field have been waiting a long, long time for a female to come along and hit one deep into the night sky above Lyons Field and over the outfield fence that sits so far away. This finally happened in 2018 and then again for the 2nd time in 2020. Below is a list of females who have joined and also come close to joining the 265 club.
