Prince George's County Softball Update

You'll recall that last August, the National Women's Law Center negotiated with Prince George's County, Maryland, an agreement to improve athletic facilities for girls' softball.

This recent article from a local paper reports on the progress the county has made toward renovating the dozen fields covered by the agreement. The field at Largo High School has been completely refurbished to include several of the missing safety features that prompted the agreement including dugouts, a warning track and an outfield fence. There is, however, more work to be done to improve the remaining fields, which "still reflect years, even decades of neglect."
