Marlboro defeated Rye Neck 4-3 in the girls softball Class B regional semi final in Rhinebeck June 4, 2015.

Marlboro defeated Rye Neck 4-3 in the girls softball Class B regional semi final in Rhinebeck June 4, 2015.

The softball season will officially begin Monday, Mar. 7, when teams are allowed to hold their first practices.

This year’s season preview package in The Journal News/lohud.com will run Monday, Mar. 21, so mark your calendars. The package will feature nine of my top players in the section, my preseason power rankings (overall top 10), and preseason class-by-class rankings (likely the top five in each class, although I may to do top 10 in each).

For those of you that do not follow me through the volleyball or girls basketball seasons, I have a weekly column that runs every Monday, so yes, there will also be a column to check out the day the season preview runs.
