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.
