THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – In mid-March the Cal Lutheran softball team took time away from the field to give back as part of a community service project. The Regals joined up with two teams from the Thousand Oaks Girls Softball Association (TOGSA) to create care packages for troops in Afghanistan.

The current squad worked with former CLU softball player, Kathleen Watson-Otani, who is the current coach of both the e-LEMON-ators and Goofy Goobers TOGSA travel teams. Together the group sent more than 100 pounds of items to the 1-169th Fox Company stationed in Camp Dwyer, Afghanistan where Watson-Otani’s brother Brian is serving for the United States of America.

During the March 9 games against Occidental, the Regals asked fans to write a quick note to the troops, which were included in the care packages sent overseas.
