If someone had told me when I was a kid that I would be spending entire weekends and summers at some softball field in CA, I would have just laughed in their face. I never played any sport. Zilch! Nada!! Any memory of PE in high school only involved being in marching squad during the opening ceremony which happened once a year. Otherwise once a week PE consisted of hiding behind trees with friends and emerging out towards the end of the class. Teacher couldn’t keep track since there were 50 girls to 1 teacher. Yes, I went to an all girls school in a different country. We all looked the same in uniform. No grade for PE and our school field had plenty of trees to hide behind. I was a nerd.
So when my kids started playing softball, I became the softball dummy and a softball mommy 😉
I started this blog so people like me can go somewhere to find out the most basic things about softball. I am still learning.
What is softball?
It must be baseball for girls with softer balls.
