The JRF Panthers Softball Organization was founded in Spring 2008 by a bunch of local high school juniors in Reading, Pennsylvania. The teams first season was in Summer 2009. Slow-pitch softball at the time was a way for the group of recently graduated high school seniors to stay connected after high school. Today the team may look a little different but it continues to evolve. From being featured in newspapers and even the National Softball Magazine, the team has gathered quite the following over the years, with providing a constant emphasis on giving back to the community. The team is now sponsored by Black and Pink Media.
