For months, players from the Burbank Park, Recreation and Community

Services Department Ponytail Softball league have been busy taking

part in competition.

With victories and division championships at stake, the athletes

worked hard to better themselves, and their teams.

However, Saturday at Olive Park, the players were able to relax a

little and have some fun, as they celebrated the ending of another

successful season with the annual Ponytail Softball Jamboree,

sponsored by the Foothill Civitan Club.

Like their Hap Minor Baseball counterparts the week before, the

softball players invaded the park for their traditional skills

competition, food, refreshments.

The day began with a parade from the Media City Center Mall to

Olive Park for the annual skills competition and awards ceremony. In

the skills competition, players took part in four events -- hitting
