The Varsity softball team at Emma competes in the Central Hudson Valley League, was League Champion in 2015-16 and has consistently been in the upper half of the standings for the last several years. Our forte is our stellar defense. We play “small ball” more than a power game, and we focus on onbase percentage rather than batting average. The Varsity team is a great combination of year-round travel softball players, seasonal players, and relative newcomers to the sport. During practice we work on basics, perfect our defense, hit outside and in the indoor cage, and improve our agility on the base paths.
