We were a softball family. When she was little Mr.L was an assistant coach and I was the team mom. Once we signed her up for the new season out came the bucket of balls our gloves and fun times in the backyard and at the games.
She started in Kindergarten and use to run on her tip-toes down the first base line earning her the nickname "twinkle toes" Little. That first year she spent more time playing in the dirt than being the short stop. She was so cute!
MsL. played softball through her Junior year of High School. She played left field and could throw down to home plate like nobodies business. One of her coaches nicknamed her "Hollywood" because she always had her sunglasses on. Her favorite quote: If softball was easy it would be called baseball!
I miss those times...
