What Do You Bring to Your Team
The thing about team sports is when you put on the jersey; you are now connected with your teammates to achieve the same goal, winning. Together you represent your program, whether it’s travel, high school, or college ball. While you may be performing as an individual, you are competing for your team.
One of the most remarkable things about softball is the amount of athletic diversity the game welcomes. Whether you’re tall, short, strong, or speedy, there is a place for you to thrive. A quick player might find themselves in the outfield or becoming a leadoff slapper for their team. A strong player can find a place in a clean-up spot or pitching in the circle. The ability to succeed in this sport, no matter your size, emphasizes how much we should appreciate the different talents your teammates bring to your program.
To be the best hitter in the state wouldn’t have much effect on wins and losses without the help of a fantastic pitcher and defense to keep runs off the board. Bring what you do best to the table and have the confidence that your teammates will do the same. Great teammates will encourage the progress of their peers in order to help the team achieve as a whole.
