A match made in heaven: UWRF softball field named for longtime coach Perkins

Pierce County Herald - 04-16


When Faye Perkins arrived at UW-River Falls in 1986, the softball field on campus was nothing more than a dirt infield with a chain-link fence backstop. "That was it," she said. "There was no outfield fence, there were no dugouts, no batting cages, no pitching warm-up area. We had to carry benches out from the Knowles Center to sit on."
