Softball Pros


Back in January a P.E. teacher from my school was recruiting couples to play in the city co-ed softball league. Being stupid I opened my mouth up and said, "Jon loves softball and always wished I would play. I won't tell him since he would die to play! But, I won't play.. I can't play.. I don't know how to play!" Well without really consenting my friend Mindy the P.E. teacher signed us up anyway. 5 other teachers and spouses from our school signed up. I was so scared. I had never played sports before! I was always the dancer who cared more about what she looked like, sports were never my thing. Until now I guess! Little to my surprise I have actually found an enjoyment for this sport. I have gained more self confidence for myself, Jon and I have got to spend time doing something together, and my sport abilities have gotten much better! After 6 weeks of playing, my batting skills have gotten better. I can now hit and make it to 1st base. I have only made one run for my team this season which is pretty pathetic, but we are talking about me here! Anyway, it has been so fun and I am happy Mindy ended up signing us up. I need to practice catching now cause I still dodge the ball instead of catching it. I will have to keep practicing for next season!
