USA Softball Announces Georgia Tour Stops
USA Softball announced two "Stand Beside Her" tour stops in Georgia on Tuesday.
The two stops, which will take place on April 3 in Columbus, Ga. and April 5 in Woodstock, Ga., will include a total of four exhibition contests.
"USA Softball of Georgia wants to thank USA Softball, the National Governing Body of Softball, for selecting Georgia to host two stops on the USA Softball Olympic Team's 'Stand Beside Her' tour," USA Softball of Georgia Commissioner Al Dattolo said in a press release. "Both cities are longtime supporters of USA Softball and Columbus was the host site of the inaugural Olympic softball competition in 1996. We are honored to have been selected to host two tour stops in our state, and we are excited to provide a memorable experience to everyone."
Team USA's opponents for its Georgia tour stops have not yet been revealed.
Other "Stand Beside Her" tour stops that have been announced by USA Softball include Feb. 7-9 in Florida, Feb. 20-23 in California, March 31 in Alabama and April 25 in Texas.
The main message of the 2020 Olympic team's "Stand Beside Her" tour is unity, as the U.S. begins its quest for an Olympic gold medal.
Next summer, softball will make its first appearance at the Olympic Games since 2008, with the gold-medal game scheduled for July 28.
