Softball shouldn't be taken too seriously, nor for granted.
When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
Softball is just a game. When I played(coached) I thought it was life or death. I believe if I would have had a better perspective on things it might have been easier and even more enjoyable. We can't take it too seriously, but at the same time recognize that we have a great opportunity to be able to play a game that we love with our teammates and friends.
