"Baseball frees me from the concerns of everyday life." This is a quote I can relate to in Will Reising's "Balance Through Baseball." Softball has been a huge impact on my life for the past 12 years. Being on the softball field is stress relieving. Between school work and social drama, it's very hard to stay focus, but when I step on the field that all fades away. Thank you Will for writing this article it really touched me, and I too will look back fondly on my years of playing softball.
