My name is Grace Humes. I started playing softball when I was eight years old. Six years later, it has become one of the biggest parts of my life. I have acquired many different friendships and made many great memories through this sport. I hope to keep these with me for the rest of my life.
My favorite part about playing softball is that feeling after I reach a goal, such as throwing a new pitch, after working very hard to accomplish it. One of my greatest experiences in softball is the day I won my first tournament. It was in that moment that I knew that the hours I had been putting in had finally paid off. However, I could never had accomplished this without first experiencing the feeling of failure after a hard loss.
