Before we started our coach called us over and started saying, “Remember at all times in this game you must trust yourself!” We broke off as a team running to our spots.

    All the bases were loaded, two outs, two strikes, and we were losing 5-9. I was up to bat, extremely scared, and very pressured. My coach was yelling at me and telling me all these things to do and they were making my mind crazy. I was scared I would strike out and my whole team would be mad, I was scared my dad would be angry, and I was afraid that I would let myself down.

    “That’s ball four,” the umpire called. I sighed, watching the runners advance to the next base on the field. I tossed the softball into my right hand, getting ready for my next pitch. I swung my right arm back, forward and around my head, finally releasing the ball with my fingertips as I had been taught. I watched as the ball spun in the air, travelling higher and higher, and then as it dropped behind the umpire. “Ball one,” the umpire exclaimed. Three pitches later, the batter walked to first…
