The Philadelphia Force is a women's professional softball team based in Allentown, Pennsylvania. From 2006 to 2009, it played as a member of National Pro Fastpitch (NPF) league[1] until a failed sale in September 2009 put the team's future in question and is still[when?] undecided.[2] Their home games took place at ECTB Stadium at Bicentennial Park.

History[edit]

The Philadelphia Force's inaugural season was in 2006. Two years later, the Force played in the National Pro Fastpitch championship, but were defeated by the Chicago Bandits.

One of the most prominent veterans of the Force is Natasha Watley, who also played in international competition with the United States women's national softball team. She joined the team in 2006, but her time with the Force was limited by national team commitments.

The Philadelphia Force is in hiatus until 2011[3]
