A number of Sports Field Manager’s Association (SFMA) members will be part of an all-female volunteer grounds crew in charge of the 8-day-long Little League Softball World Series (LLSWS), including the championship game on August 13.

The LLSWS is held at Stallings Stadium at Elm Street Park in Greenville, N.C. The crew will be responsible for all the field maintenance before, during and after the games. This is the second year for this all-female crew to come together.

Little League will host two Athletes Unlimited — a women’s professional softball league — games at the neighboring Max R. Joyner Family Stadium on the campus of East Carolina University. This crew will be responsible for preparing and maintaining that field as well.

Led by the planning committee of Sun Roesslein, CSFM, Nina Oldenkamp, Amy Fouty, CSFM, and Chris Ball, CSFM, the crew has grown to 20 members this year, with more than half being SFMA members.
