Typically a softball game will last 7 innings and be over with in a couple of hours but that isn’t what is going on at Caldwell Park this weekend. Starting at 5pm Friday night, the Pella Christian Grade School Softball Marathon Team will start playing and they won’t wrap things up until 5pm on Saturday. The 24-hour softball marathon features different area teams playing against the 24-hour team and plenty of other fun and games in between. The event began in 2001 and the school was able to raise $30,000 and committee member Lauri Amelse said that their goal for this year is to raise $80,000.
