Dovey's Softball

Post by awip2062 » Mon Jan 21, 2008 10:28 pm

Just got a call from the coach of our local tournament softball team and he said he's so impressed with Dovey's hard work in Pitching Clinic this winter he wants her on his team and is willing to give her a FULL SCHOLARSHIP to get her!

Full scholarship means you don't have to pay any fees for her to be on teh team? That's awesome!!!

No fees at all, and for those weekends we can't all go with her, there are trusted people she can travel with, although I want to go as much as possible. She's only out of town four weekends!

Better to hit a Homer, than to pull a Homer. :-)

Well, Dovey and I headed out across the water to her first traveling softball team tournament. Her team played their first game together against teams that started playing earlier this year (many teams over there have indoor places to play, but we don't) and they held their own. They lost the first game 2-1, won the second 9-5, lost the third 4-1.

Dovey got on base on balls most times, struck out a few, and caught a ball in the outfield. No errors. :-)

Here's a few pics.

The team:

They were supposed to play at least one game today, and then keep playing as long as they won, but the day got rained out. :-(

Agh! I just got around to seeing this thread. I must admit to not visiting the sports section as much as anyone else.

Congrats Dovey! Cool pics.
