The Verona Baseball and Softball League (VBSL) and Verona High School (VHS) Softball Boosters recently joined forces to sponsor a 14u girls softball tournament in honor of the late Tom DaRin, a long-time VBSL coach and father of one past and one incoming VHS player. The VBSL donated proceeds from the tournament to support the high school team’s fundraising efforts. The Hillbillies will make their second consecutive spring training trip to Florida in March 2017.
The tournament featured six teams from throughout New Jersey competing in a day-long event at Everett Field and Brookdale Avenue Elementary School. VHS players and Booster club parents volunteered their time to prepare fields and sell concessions.
Cindi DaRin and her daughter, Jenna, were in attendance and were presented a plaque commemorating the event. Jenna is a member of the VBSL’s 14u softball team and a VHS freshman.
