Softball has not only been just a sport for me. It's been something that I know will never leave my life. When I step on to a field either it's for a game or practice I feel like I can do anything. My father who first signed me up for T-ball never regretted doing that. He knew that one day I will play in college and become a great softball player. In January 2012 my father died of stage 4 colon cancer. Since the end of 2011 and beginning of 2012 my life became a you can't. To never give up on myself because throughout my dads sickness doctors told him numerous times how a short period of time he has to live but he never disaster since of my dads sickness. The one thing my father told me before he passed away was to never give up, to keep practicing and to never let anyone tell lost his spirit. He always enjoyed ever minute he had with family and friends. I made a promise to him and to myself that I would play softball in college as a pitcher. I really want all coaches to know I am a really hard worker and I never give up. I may not be like other players out there but I am probably one of the ones who has the biggest heart for softball.
