Let's play ball!

Our family has joined the ranks of Spring Ball. Softball and all the fixings fill our trunk, fill up our calendar and fill up our competitive sports tanks! The girls play on separate teams because of their ages. Olivia's team is called "Wildwood Auto Repair and Wrecker Service"... this is a mouthful when one is trying to cheer, so we just yell, "GO BLUE!" or their number! Olivia can crack a good one when she puts her muscle behind it, and she can get around those bases!

Stephanie is the shortest and youngest on her team. That alone is new territory for us. She likes playing, but finds the others a little intimidating. She has surprised the coach and made it home both times she's been on base. Figuring out what the coach is yelling is half the battle! It is fast pitch...which usually means it is all over the place! It is going to be a good season!

Serious practice before the game with her Dad.

Well, not the shortest, but the newest out of all these girls.

Olivia on the other hand is the oldest and most experienced with one season of baseball from the fall... lots of errors, strikes and overthrows will be observed this season...but lots of cheering too!
