Where: Huntington Beach Sports Complex – Field #4

Huntington Beach, Ca. 92648
The City of Huntington Beach has graciously allowed the softball community to hold the Memorial for Bri Matthews at their complex. Bri’s family felt that this was the best place to honor Bri, since this is where she played many, many games.
This is not a religious service. Rather, it will be a gathering of her family, friends,classmates, and anyone from inside or outside the softball community to remember this very special athlete and person. The Matthews family desires that the gathering be open to anyone who wants to convey a final goodbye to Bri.
Her family asks that High School players attending this Memorial, wear their complete High School uniform. If you are not in High School, then they ask that you wear your travelball uniform. The family thought that this would be a great tribute to Bri, to have all of her fellow players attend in full uniform. In the event of cool weather, a school jacket would also be appropriate.
The memorial will actually be held on the softball field. The City of HB will drag and chalk the field, install the bases and the outfield fence. There will be a stage and microphone set up behind 2nd base and chairs will be placed in the outfield.
If anyone would like to bring cookies or cupcakes it would be appreciated.—there will be a few tables set up for any donated desserts.
