Just a quick update/story before bed-
A few weeks ago we found a place where I could play softball! practices on Wednesdays and games on Saturdays. I was SUPER excited. I started practicing with my dad. One Wednesday we went to the sports center kind of place to show the coaches what I could do and to watch the team practice. I was so bad! They understood obviously because I hadn’t practiced in a year! They played very differently. Most important to me was how they pitched. Underhand. Slow Pitch. I had never ever done that before! It was crazy the ball when like straight up in the air when I tried! It was so funny!
So I decided to go to the game on Saturday just to see what it was like. I ended up playing second base the whole time. It was… HOT! I was burning up! when I got up to bat the first time I was sooo nervous. I did absolutely HORRIBLY! I swung at the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd pitch none of which would’ve been called strikes had i not swung! I felt like I couldn’t stop myself from swinging. I could only hear people laughing. I was just some stupid white girl who couldn’t even speak Spanish. I didn’t know what to do. I just started crying sooooo hard! To make it worse I was the 3rd out… great. I marched off the field and I was humiliated and embarrassed. What was I doing there?
I haven’t been back. I haven’t even touched my softball gear. I’m done with softball. It has been to long and I will never be able to play the same. I am going to miss it so so so much. I played 7 straight years of it and I’m happy to be able to say that But it’s okay! As I have said before I have started playing basketball and I am still keeping up with soccer!
We won 3rd place for Varsity Soccer in school this year! We had a much better season than last year when we never won a game HAHA. We got a trophy too! Basketball is coming up in the Spring also! There is a triathlon in February also. I did it last year and got 1st for middle school girls but ahg it stresses me out just thinking about it! I don’t know if I should do it? Let me know
