The softball season is about to get underway in the Drumheller Valley.
There were fears of a possible delay after the Newcastle ball diamonds were covered in water a week ago, but the president of the Drumheller Girls Softball Association believes it's okay now.
"I just was in and looked at (diamonds) two and three and they're really in not bad shape," Kent Jensen told 99.5 Drum FM. "The town was in cleaning the leaves and stuff off and they're dry and useable."
"Diamond one was good: I had a look at it today to see if it needed to be dragged again, but I'll drag it before their game on Sunday," he added. "I was a little worried: we didn't know how things were going to happen, but things are looking up."
Jensen said the girls have already begun to practise and are looking forward to their first games.
"We've got a U8, a U10, U12, two U14's and a U16 team this year," he outlined. "One of the U14 teams has got a double header here on Sunday."
