Alliance Exec In Softball Hall Of Fame
Barbara Furrer, human resources director with Alliance Credit Union here, was recognized with a day named in her honor after she was inducted into the St. Louis Softball Hall of Fame. Fenton Mayor Dennis J. Hancock visited Alliance Credit Union to proclaim April 18, 2006 as "Barbara Furrer Day". Furrer has played softball since the age of six and was eventually named second team All American. She played competitively until about the age of 30, and coached St. Louis "select" teams for approximately 15 years and led two teams to first place in the National Championship and led two other teams to win second place. The Missouri American Amateur Association selected Furrer to coach the All Star team that played the 2004 Olympic team. For the past five years Furrer has enjoyed coaching the Notre Dame High School Softball Team.
