Softball field facelifts in Maryland

Though things may not be moving much on the softball fields in Charleston, farther north in Prince George's County, Maryland 17 of the county's 22 softball fields have undergone improvements in the past couple of years. The over $1 million spent on the fields is the result of the scrutiny the county received in 2006 over Title IX compliance related to facilities. Officials are also working on increasing the overall participation of girls and, according to the article "will promote girls sports through 2008."

One would hope this is a mistake in reporting and that the plan is to promote girls' sports well beyond this year.
