Dobbins Reunites on Field with Peace Alumnae

By on August 3, 2010 5:45 pm

Raleigh, N.C. – Head Peace College Softball Coach Charlie Dobbins reunited on the softball field Thursday evening with daughter and former Pacer Nikki Dobbins and standout pitcher Ashley Stansbury. On the final tour with the nationally renowned fastpitch softball team King and His Court, Dobbins and his teammates, trick pitcher Rich Hoppe along with Chris Bowling and guest players Ron Davenport and Veronica Wootson-Ross, entertained a local crowd at the Walnut Creek Softball Complex as preview to the ASA Southern Nationals softball tournament.

 

The Court began in 1946 with the legendary talent of Eddie Feigner. The four-man team provides family entertainment featuring "stunt pitches, feats of athletic talent and crowd-pleasing comedic routines that stir laughter from young and old."

 

Dobbins and Hoppe used this environment to establish the garner-based King of Diamonds in 1991 as a source of inspiration and camaraderie for young players in the area.

 

The Peace College softball team opens the 2011 season at the N.C. Central University Invitational in Cary, N.C., February 12. The Pacers host Guilford College on Wednesday, February 23, in the first home doubleheader of the year. See you on the sidelines!
