    Beyond the gritted teeth, sweat-soaked jerseys and sand-stained slacks, there lies a deeper, more intrinsic value in what it means to be a softballer. Simply said, there is more to us than meets the eye – or the bat.

    Perhaps the biggest reward of becoming a softballer is gaining a band of brothers/sisters you play, train, grow and learn with. Softball is a team sport where each and every player that steps onto the field can put in their 110% for name on the front and not the back. The experience of being part of something larger than oneself not only teaches us how to fight but gives us something to fight for. The bonds we forge, the memories we make and the family we create is something that you simply have to be part of to comprehend.This team also includes supportive and dedicated teachers in charge and our beloved coaches we learn to respect and look up to.
