Softball isn't just a sport, a hobby, or something to do. Its life. It takes hard work, dedication, and the desire to play the game. You practice every day because you want to, not because you have to. You do whatever you can to improve, not only for yourself, but for your teammates. You want to push your limits for the love of the game. You play every game as if it were your last.
You battle through the blood, sweat and tears. You enjoy the challenge each play brings. you never look back on the past, only focusing on the present. Everything you do is for the love of the game.
Because you know you couldn't imagine your life WITHOUT IT.
