THE BEGINING1993.
THE FOUNDING OF THE SOFTBALL CLUB PRINC DUGAVE

Softball Club Princ was founded in 1993. under the Name Princ-Dugave, but the name changed after we were assigned the fields at RSC Jarun in Zagreb. A great Facor throughout the process of developing the club has been the help from the US – the clubs first ever coaches Cindy and Jeff Warner from the state of Connecticut.
