Describing herself as being “very competitive by nature,” Beit Shemesh resident, public relations executive and mother of five Dena Wimpfheimer had enough of just running on the treadmill for exercise.

So this past spring Wimpfheimer dusted off her glove and after an eight-year hiatus, rejoined her teammates on the Beit Shemesh Fireballs, one of the three teams which make up the small but growing women’s windmill fast-pitch softball league, under the auspices of the Israel Softball Association. The league is comprised of two seasons, a spring season with 18 to 20 games and a fall tournament.
