The Tri County Fastpitch League was established in 1972 to promote fastpitch softball for girls in the St. Paul/Minneapolis metropolitan area and now part of Western Wisconsin. The league acts as a clearinghouse for interested communities, and limits it's self to the scheduling of league games between member associations, determines State tournament advancing and corresponding player eligibility standards.
