Festivities on and off the field will surround the District 10-4A softball opener on Tuesday when Highland Park hosts Terrell.

The program will celebrate its 20th anniversary with appearances by former players, a photo button booth, a drawing to win Texas Rangers tickets, and hamburgers and hot dogs grilled by the team dads.

Lisa Prather, who was the pitcher during HP’s first varsity season in 1994, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch, and the HP Lads and Lassies will sing the national anthem.

Plus, of course, it will be the first district game played under the lights at the school’s softball field. For more information on the alumni festivities, call Barbara Orr at 214-683-5531 or Donna Hodges at 713-416-4352.
