Just having fun!!!
I worked hard on fielding, I played catch with my dad every day, even if it was just in my front yard. He would move his glove around giving me targets to hit, this helped me on my throwing accuracy. I played shortstop, so I would have to make the long throw to first, especially on a ball hit deep in the whole. We would lift a lot of weights, making sure I was strong and able to make the throw and get it there quick. My dad would always hit me balls and show me how to absorb the ball so that I can bring it out of my glove and fire the ball to make the play. “Soft hands”, my dad would say, “Absorb the ball into your glove with soft hands.”
