Cheyenne, 19, FL. Softball is my life and music is my escape. I love everybody, regardless of race, religion, gender, sexuality, etc. If you want to know anything, just ask! If you need someone to talk to, I'm here(:

 

We, as softball players, make the game seem so easy, but if you think about it and break it down, you realize how difficult it really is.

Every time you step on the field, the odds are constantly against you. When you’re up to bat, you only have a certain number of chances to hit a round ball with a rounded stick. Not only that, but you have to have the perfect timing, hand-eye coordination, and have your whole body in sync to make good contact and apply the right amount of power. Once you make good contact, you have to hit it inside two lines on both sides of you, and you have to try to place it where the opponents, who are spread equally across the field, cannot get to it (easily). If you hit it to an infielder, you have to sprint to a bag that is 60 feet away, before the player throws the ball to the first baseman.
When you’re on defense, the odds are also against you seeing as you not only have to have the perfect form to receive the ball correctly, but you have to have a good throw, and the player you’re throwing to must catch the ball, and have control of it, before the runner touches the bag..or tag the runner before they reach the bag.
Not only that, but you also have to adjust to the umpires every game. The strikezones of the umpires are normally similar, but can be quite difficult to adjust to. There are so many techniques that must be mastered, though they can never be perfected, to become a decent softball player.

When people say softball is easy because “all you have to do is hit the ball, field the ball, throw the ball, and run”..slap them in the face. Don’t even explain the game, just slap them in the face and walk away.
