As such, it would be an incredible feat to list every slowpitch rule; however, similarities exist across all levels of play.
Softball teaches and allows young girls to experience more than just striking people out and hitting a home run yes, I know, those are 2 of the best feelings in the entire world.
There are so many things to learn through sports, and I wanted to take it a little bit deeper than just the basic ra-ra about teamwork and hard work. What is it about working with your teammates that stretches you as a person?
What is it about the beautiful combination of failing and winning that keeps us coming back for more? I want to start with one of my favorite things to do in this entire world that I learned from softball.
Playing on a select tournament team led me to my current passion that I have for traveling. I loved going to the tournaments that were outside of Houston, inside of Texas, but what I really enjoyed was getting a chance to visit states like Florida, Arizona, California, Oregon, Colorado, and many others.
I even got to go play in Australia when I was in 7th grade against teams from Japan and teams from within Australia.
Had softball not been a part of my life, I may have never gotten to have these amazing travel experiences. I consider travel such a great way to explore the world and to get to know another culture and another state. I remember being a young girl and going to a different state and just taking in everything about it from the way that their highways were different than ours in Houston to how the houses were built differently.
Also of course, I love to do it for fun as a hobby, as I have been to many different countries including, Australia, Thailand, Dominican Republic, Honduras, and many countries in Europe.
Little did I know that even as a young girl I was networking for my future. You parents may laugh at this one, as networking seems like a concept that you really only start once you get to college. But for me, I look back and that is just not true.
I am still in contact with so many amazing coaches and adults from my childhood. It may have been years since I last spoke to some of them, but they always have a place in my life as we shared a bond growing up from softball that will always tie us together. I had no idea that…. The networking and relationships formed does not just deal with the people who were adults when I was growing up, but also with my teammates I played with on various different teams.
We now have a new relationship as some of them are coaching collegiately across the country. People who were once your opponents become your friends just because of the connection of our sport.
One of the most important things you can remember is that you never know the impression you are leaving on someone- teammates, coaches, opponents- make it a lasting one.Bolton signed a letter of intent on Monday to play softball at Morningside College in front of coaches, relatives, classmates and teachers.
