The USA Softball “Stand Beside Her” Tour has been postponed until May 11, which was scheduled to stop in Shreveport next month at Cargill Park for a doubleheader. The games included the Women’s National Softball Team against Louisiana Tech University and University of Louisiana Monroe. The new Shreveport date has not been announced. The official USA Softball announcement is below:
“USA Softball announced that the “Stand Beside Her” tour, presented by Major League Baseball (MLB), is postponed until May 11 due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic. As a host of a “Stand Beside Her” tour stop with an event prior to May 11, we are working with USA Softball to potentially reschedule our Shreveport tour stop. By April 13, USA Softball will make an announcement for the status of the tour and rescheduled tour stops, which may include the Shreveport tour stop originally scheduled for April 15, 2020. This rapidly developing situation has warranted consideration of many factors, and the health, safety and wellness of all those involved continues to be the top priority.
“Our hearts go out to those impacted by the COVID-19 virus, and we understand the critical importance of protecting those most susceptible to the virus. USA Softball, the City of Shreveport and the Shreveport-Bossier Sports Commission continue to monitor this fluid situation closely, and is advising everyone to follow the guidelines set by the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), your state’s public health department, and other parish/county and/or local authorities including area school districts and government agencies.”
