B is for Ballgame

B is for ballgame.  Girls’ softball teams play a ballgame in a field on a summer day.  Softball is a team sport.   An individual may shine in the game, but a team wins it.

The point of the game is not how well the individual does but whether the team wins. That is the beautiful part of the game, the blending of personalities, the mutual sacrifices for group success. Even when you’ve played the game of your life, it’s the feeling of teamwork that you’ll remember. You’ll forget the plays, the hits, and the scores, but you’ll never forget your teammates. –Anonymous

We’re prepared, and we’ve done everything we can to prepare for this moment in time.  That’s what confidence is all about. –Lisa Fernandez, Team USA
