Stories about Emmie

Softball

If you follow me on Instagram, then you may already know that Emmie has fallen in love with softball.

A more accurate statement is that she’s fallen in love with being on a softball team.

She’s one of the smallest and youngest on the team. At times that makes me a little worried, but mostly it just makes me smile and enjoy this moment in history when her feet don’t touch the ground.

She’s all that and a bag of Cracker Jacks when she’s at bat. And she’s giving it a try as pitcher, which took us all by surprise. This is fast-pitch softball and she’s thrown a few strikes. A lot of balls, too. πŸ™‚ After the fourth ball, the coach comes out and pitches. There’s a lot more action in the field than I ever expected.

And there are a lot more games than I expected, too. There are more than 17 games (plus some more at the end of the season). SEVENTEEN. PLUS SOME.

It’s so much fun, though. She really gets into the game and loves joining in on all the cheers.

She’s having a blast!

  1. Hey, at least there’s one girl smaller and younger than Emmie on the team πŸ˜‰! I, too, was shocked at the number of games…but the girls are playing their hearts out and having a ball! Thanks for signing Emmie up for this season! Thinking about fall ball yet?!? πŸ˜‚

    1. I’ll laugh when they’re funny. Although, I will say, you were cracking me up on Sunday because of how funny you thought you were!
