This is my first attempt at writing since the article on my wifes passing. I guess I just needed some inspiration. Well, I found it, and it came from my granddaughter. I'll give you a little background on her first:
She's 14 years old and has been obsessed with softball since she was 7. She's a pitcher, and her goal is to some day pitch for Penn State. She practices everyday and works out on her bo-flex 3 times a week. She also lifts weights 3 times a week in the winter months.
Our local school has just started a junior high team this year. Last night, she pitched against a team that has been a powerhouse in the junior high division for a number of years. She threw a perfect game, striking out 19 of 21 batters. The closest a batter came to getting on was when she started a batter 3-0 but came back to strike her out. Tonight, I'll be taking my pride and joy to the best restaurant in town. Maybe Penn State isn't out of the question after all.
