The Fillmore Girls Softball/T-Ball League offers players, ages four and one-half to sixteen, living within the Fillmore, Piru, and Santa Paula communities to participate in a softball program.  The goal of the program is to instill and develop good sportsmanship, discipline, teamwork, and leadership; all excellent qualities our youth need to build along with self-confidence and a strong sense of community.


Sometime between January 14, 2016, at 7:00 pm and January 16, at 9:50 am, unknown person(s) broke a latch to a storage container at Shiells Park and stole several articles of sporting equipment used by the league.  Some of the property stolen included three sets of brand new 'Easton' catcher's gear, two five gallon buckets of softballs, and three 100-foot long extension cords.


The Fillmore Police Department is asking for help to track down the softball gear and to apprehend the person(s) responsible for this crime against the community.  If you have any information, please contact Detective Javier Chavez at the Fillmore Police Station or any deputy you may encounter.  You may remain anonymous and your information will remain confidential.
