USA Softball Announces New Jersey Tour Stop
USA Softball has announced a "Stand Beside Her" tour stop in New Jersey.
The stop will take place June 21 at the Wall Township Municipal Complex in Wall Township, N.J. and feature an exhibition doubleheader against a team of collegiate standouts.
"Wall Township, New Jersey, here we come," Team USA member Valerie Arioto said in a statement. "I am so excited to continue our tour onto the East Coast and get some great training time together as we get closer to the Olympic Games. Thank you, New Jersey, and I can't wait to see you all out at the ballpark."
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 17 and 18 in Oregon, March 31 and April 1 in Alabama, April 3 and 5 in Georgia, April 7 and May 30 in Tennessee, April 15 in Louisiana, April 18 and 25 in Texas, May 1 and 3 in Missouri, June 3 in Missouri, June 9 and 10 in Michigan and June 25 in Virginia.
The main message of Team USA's "Stand Beside Her" tour is unity, as the U.S. women's national softball team begins its quest for a gold medal at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
In July, softball will make its first appearance at the Summer Games since 2008. The gold-medal game is scheduled for July 28.
