As the rain continues to fall, and the diamonds are looking
too wet to play on, Lightning girls have already dealt some lightning strikes
in the area before the season has even begun!
London Lightning Fastball and UTM hosted the Spring Tune-Up in London, Ontario at the BMO Centre April 27 & 28. A huge success for this first time event, both for London and the incredible BMO facility; with teams representing from all over Ontario.
