By now, Jennie’s life was focused on softball, though she did have a normal life outside the sport. She liked to shop, try on her mom’s makeup and hang out with her friends. In school, she was an excellent student. But softball consumed most of her free time. Every summer the sport brought her to a new part of the country for a national tournament.
Have you ever had so much passion for a sport you have been playing for almost your whole life? I love playing all positions of softball and I admire everything that comes with it that includes battle wounds, road trips to games, making memories to practicing out on home field getting ready to bat some love into their lives. Softball is not an easy sport at all but it’s my passion and a privilege to be able to stand on that field. So much love, effort and hard work has been put in over the years. After 12 years of truly knowing the sport these are my favorite things out on the field such as pitching with strength, sliding with passion, and batting to hear all of your support to make a home run!
Softball is a culture within itself comprised of a very niche community of individuals that work hard and continually strive to learn, grow, and evolve. Playing for both a local team and travel team really helped me to establish a sense of community among my peers and teammates. Playing a sport all throughout my adolescence really instilled a sense of pride and accomplishment. It taught me dedication,
“How JROTC has prepared me to be a better citizen of the United states of America”. JROTC has prepared me to become a better citizen by teaching me how to use leadership skills and be able to cope with subordinates. It also has prepared me to be a better citizen by showing me what the 7 army values are and what they mean. Some of the army values are respect, honor, integrity, and personal courage. JROTC has showed me how to do things different from the way I thought things should be done and how to march and be able to keep a company and platoon together when marching. Since I know a lot about the JROTC I am able to help other people become better citizens like I was taught. I am also a better citizen because i have the discipline not to do certain things that I did before I took the JROTC class.
Imagine standing on a softball field expected to perform at the age of 5. Even though the butterflies in my stomach were starting a war, nothing was going to stop me from stepping on that field to play my first tee ball game as a Little Tiger. Fans cheered, but what I noticed most was a little boy in the outfield picking his nose. Standing in the box, I was terrified; the field looked huge. I had never seen anything like this before, but I knew that the little boy was the person I needed to hit the ball to, so I hit the ball as hard as I could. The ball went soaring through the air like a bird on fire. Dropping from the air, it rolled to the fence. At that time, I knew I had fallen in love with the game of softball. I was smiling from ear to ear, I couldn’t believe I had hit the ball that far! Both sides screamed, yelled, and shouted with excitement. Was all this commotion for me? I rounded first, but I couldn’t go to second because my teammate, Kylie Leach, didn’t run. I didn’t know what she was doing. Sadly, the batter after me hit a ground ball to the pitcher, and the other team threw him out at first.
One of the many sport The Gators dominate in, is softball. The Gators always manage to be ranked fifth seed or above nationally. And this year is no different because they stand their ground and have managed to get first seed. They always rank high because of their training. The girls that participate in The Gators softball always try to give their best, and with all this hard work they almost always succeed. “ The undefeated and No. 1 ranked Florida Gators will start SEC play this weekend against LSU and the Gators will look to build upon their 27-0 start that is the best start in school history.” states the article (“The Battle of the Unbeaten in Softball”).

Searching for a path to regain stability, the Pirates headed to Mazama on Tuesday April 26th for a single game. On paper, it seemed the Pirates had the advantage in nearly every facet of the game, but baseball is a fickle matter. Though the Vikings had played a double header just the day before, their offense came swinging early and often amidst the swirling winds of Mazama. The Pirates initially managed to strike quick in the

Later aluminum bats were made and now composite bats are what is used.” When talking about these bats and the new designs that are being used and the “pop” they have now are just unrealistic she made a point to me that really stuck out when she said, “The game that started as a pitchers game has now become a game of offense because of the bats.” That really spoke out to me because the game is not matching the bat to the power of the pitchers and is making the game more competitive. We started laughing at the thought of some of my teammates having to hit a ball with a broom stick then we got into more of the deeper questions. As a player I’ve always wondered what was a coaches true intentions and as I asked Coach Perry, “As a coach what is your philosophies?” and as I expected she did disappoint with her answer being, “To develop a positive environment for the advancement of softball, and softball skills, and knowledge of the game. To assure that winning isn’t everything, but working to be successful is. By successful I mean in the classroom, on the field, and in life. By striving to be successful, winning will go hand in hand in that. Also insuring everyone knows the play a special and unique part of the team and what the team will accomplish. Everyone brings something different, but great to a team,

Scott Sloan grew up raising purebred hogs and wanted his kids to have the same experience. The start of Team Sloan was slow but they eventually branched out into a few other species and it formed quickly.
Hard work never goes un-noticed, and although I did improve, I had acquired the label of ‘outfielder’. The position that wasn’t home to me, but I was forced to recognize as my spot on the field. My first year of Varsity softball arrived and I made it clear infield is where I wanted to be, but my coach’s confidence in me continued to lack to match the level of mine, along with the fact the returning third basemen was a veteran. And the outfield is where I was sent, yet again.
Softball isn’t all smiles and winning. Sometimes things could almost get sweet. For instance, we were the first team to ever beat Gladstone. I remember it was the second game of the season and we were playing at the dome. I remember Zeke punching the air,
