The Paso Robles Girls Softball League is helping players of all ages get back into the groove after the pandemic cut their season short.

The softball clinic took place at Barney Schwartz Park, where three groups of athletes between six and 14 years old practiced their batting skills.

The event was free for all participants.

Board members of the softball league say the clinic complied with state and local health guidelines and they received the green light from the city of Paso Robles.

"Most of these teams out here only got to play one game for the 2020 season before everything shut down due to COVID, so this is our way to be able to [play] safely to be able to let them actually participate in the sport that they love," explained Chris Lapraim, Vice President of the Paso Robles Girls Softball League.

The softball league plans to host a drive-thru barbecue fundraiser November 7 from 2p.m. to 6p.m. at the Paso Robles Elks Lodge for future programs.
