The Rocky Mountain Girls Fastpitch Association (RMGFA) held a “Bat-Aid” softball tournament on Saturday, November 2, at the Youth Memorial Sports Complex in Arvada. All of the money raised, a little over two thousand dollars, went directly to help the Lyons High School softball program and players impacted by the recent floods.
