Starting Wednesday afternoon, the clang of softballs meeting the hard swing of aluminum bats will be emanating from the fields at Miller Park as the Florence Softball League gets underway.
Five teams — Welton Construction, THC, ACC, Beachcomber and the Shockers — will be on the fields for doubleheaders each Wednesday, with games at 5:30 p.m. and 7 p.m., from now through the league tournament Aug. 21 and 22.
Team managers include Tim Garneau (ACC), Cody Anderson (Beachcomber), Sean Campbell (Shockers), Rich DeSantis (THC) and Greg Welton (Welton Construction).
Games are played on the north and south fields, with teams rotating fields between games.
