Playing with the boys:

My parents think that because I'm a girl I should be playing softball. But I like to play hardball with the boys-there's more action and I'm a good athlete and I can play with them. I don't know what to do.

Hang in there!

I know how you feel. When I was younger, I felt the same way. Then, I realized that it had nothing to do with "playing with girls or boys." Softball is just as much of a sport as baseball, it is just that they are totally different. There is nothing "SOFT" about softball. Poeple think that softball is the same as baseball...if you are watching it, maybe...if you are playong fastpitch, definitely not! Softball is just as fun, athletic, and intense as baseball...it just hasn't been recognized yet!

By the way I am now playing college softball!
