Sorrrrrrrrrry, those aren’t my feet. lol
If anyone has seen my friend Jalen, PLEASE LET SOMEONE KNOW ASAP!!!!
Talk to your parents! They will be more understanding than you think;). I don’t know what modified is(we must live in different areas). There is a travel team for EVERYONE out there. There are some “B” teams that take any players. I don’t know your skill level but passion and confidence can take you miles in this game. I didn’t start travel until your age either. I started with part time teams that only did a few tournaments in the summer. I slowly progressed into an “A” player. And now I have college offers. As for finding team, google it! Or a better way is to ask your friends. Maybe some that play travel at your school. Another good way would be to go to a local sports dome or softball training company. There are a bunch of hidden softball specific training places where you can take private hitting/pitching/fielding/catching lessons. Those people all know the travel teams very well because a lot of travel teams rent out their indoor fields during the winter. But anyways, good luck and never stop playing the best sport on the planet!
Since she is so young, she can’t forget why she is playing. At that age, it’s for fun. It’s for the new friends. It’s for learning. I would give anything to start over with a POSITIVE attitude. She throws a bad pitch, SO WHAT? Do MLB baseball players every throw a WP? Of course! All the time. We play a game of inches, a game of failure. If you get 3 hits out of 10… you are seen as a success. This game is TOUGH. Hell, sports are tough. She needs to realize that after that pitch is thrown, there isn’t anything she can do. It’s gone. It’s out there. You can’t get it back. But what you CAN do is comeback with a stronger pitch. You mess up one pitch, swing at a ball in the dirt… laugh it off, because you know that you’re gonna get the next one.
