Jackie Tester hosts a few players on the team and is thrilled to watch them on the diamond again.
"We've had a lot of really great players through the years that have come through," she said. "This is our 11th year hosting so we've had about 30 players come through our house."
Only 250 fans are allowed in attendance per game. Those interested in attending are asked to call ahead for tickets to future games.
