High School Fall Softball

American Legion Post 290 is the proud sponsor of the Commonwealth Fall Softball League. This enterprise enables high school softball players to continue to improve their skills through competition during the fall season. 2017 marked the 12th year for the CFSBL and we are looking forward to another successful season in 2018. 

In 2017, we had an 8 team league that includes teams from Stafford, Spotsylvania and Prince William Counties.  Games were  played on Mondays during September and October.  Participants this year included:

              Brooke Point                      Hylton
              Chancellor                         Mountain View
             
 Woodbridge                       North Stafford
              Colonial Forge                   Riverbend

Planning for the 2018 season will begin in July.
