2004 Hall of Fame Inductees FASTPITCH
Joyce (Jones) Wolf

Joyce (Jones) Wolf, a 1949 graduate of Stadium High School, considered herself lucky when at age 18 she joined Pacific Mutual Fuels, a team of young women who “lived and breathed softball.” Joyce, who played both second and third base, played two seasons for the Fuelerettes, who each year provided some of the top individual and team talent in the Tacoma circuit. The 1949 Fuelerettes placed third in the state tournament played at Sunnyside. In 1950 she participated with many of those same players on the Tacoma Orphans squad, and a year later she was back with the Fuelerettes, who won 15 games while losing just one to capture the Pierce County Women’s Softball title. Joyce went on to play locally for two seasons with PVT Rustlers and for three seasons with Hollywood Boat & Motor. Jones had a great experience playing for HB&M, which competed in a high-level travel league with teams from such places at Vancouver, B.C., Portland, Utah, California and Arizona. Following her fastpitch career, Joyce became a successful player and coach in slowpitch softball with her team qualifying four times for nationals.
