Whoa! I haven't been on here in a while! Sorry! If anyone still wants to talk softball, I will! As for being nervous, I get that way before every game. Like, I'll be in the dugout waiting to go out to play field, and my stomach is in knots. But for me, once I start playing, the nerves die away. I love softball, so I get lost in the game, and don't pay attention to the nerves. If you love softball, then practice calming yourself before a game, and eventually you will get to the point where the nerves are gone once you start playing. If you are a pitcher, before a game, do some warm up with just your arm. I'm a 'windmill' pitcher, so when I warm up I like to not use any other parts of my body. I just take a ball, and use only my arm to pitch against the fence. It helps me with the stress and nerves, and then before I'm done I do a few full-on pitches.

I used to want to play baseball, but then I moved up in softball and its a lot more intense and fun now. I envy my older sister though, 'cause she got to play baseball. Cute boys, heck yeah! Haha!

Softball is my life. My only high is when I'm on the field<3

Totally agree with you on that. Well, my life isn't based around it, but its definitely my high. That, and playing guitar. Whenever I'm on the field, I just get this rush that I love. Some of the most important things in my life are my ball and mit, notebook and pen, and my guitar. :)

Thats awesome, Samantha!! Its cool you had someone there to help you become a better pitcher. :) I wish I'd had someone to teach me to pitch! Haha! I know what its like to only play one position. I used to only play 1st base, and I loved it. Though, it is nice now to play different positions...

Softball is super awesome, ain't it? :) 

Hmmm...Catcher? I've thought about trying out that position, but my team already has two or three catchers, so...I think I'll stick to pitching and first base. 

 

I actually just started practice last week, and have another practice tonight. It's a new team for me and my younger sis, but they seem like nice people. But...Sadly, a majority of them aren't super good at softball, but we still have time to work on that before games start. I'm really looking forward to pitching. Last night, when I had practice, another team was there practicing also, and we played an inning together. So much fun! :)

I really wish I played softball.  I just got into watching it a couple months ago cuz my college team, UofL, had the best record in the nation.  I got all the players' autographs and pictures with some.  My favorite player is like my big sister now.  I'm going to try and find a way to learn how to play this summer hopefully.

Oh wow, that's cool, peapod! That would be awesome to get their autographs and stuff. :) And I hope you do get a chance to play this year.
