Since 2001 we have fielded one or more teams in 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U and 18U age groups. In all, this year, there are close to 100 young ladies from the Pittsburgh area playing on our teams. We are a 501 (c) (3), non-profit organization centered around the Pittsburgh region. The 2019/2020 softball season is our 19th year of operation.
The goal of the Pittsburgh Lady Roadrunners is to develop our players’ skills to compete at the highest competitive levels. This requires the time and dedication of our many players, members and coaches. We accomplish this through skill training, clinics with nationally renowned figures such as Howard Kobata for fielding, Olympic Gold Medalist Crystl Bustos for hitting, Bob Hoiles for fielding, pitching instruction with Libby Kidd, catching instruction with Megan Shinnaberry, indoor fielding time during the winter months, batting cage work year round at our Training Center, and outdoor practices at several local fields that we have access to. Our teams participate at the highest class A level within the national governing bodies ASA, NSA, USSSA, PGF and Pony.
The majority of our players have continued their softball careers with Division I, Division II, and Division III college programs.
On July 8, 2014; the City of Pittsburgh proclaimed it Lady Roadrunner Day for the positive impact that we have on the young women in our area.
