Thank you for all of the love and support that you have already given. We are in the final stretch of our fundraiser with 6 days left! As a little bit of encouragement, here is a word from one of our players about her experience with Club Softball and what it has meant to her to be a part of this experience:
Since I was five, I played softball but decided not to take it to a collegiate level due to my major and my main focus being school. I stopped playing when I was 18 for the first time and thought it was fine until it came time for me to move off to college. I started at OSU Newark and honestly, it was super hard making friends and meeting people. I hated Newark and contemplated moving home many times even when I transferred here, to main campus, I thought of it. During that time of doubt, I attended tryouts and made the club softball team. Being on the team even for such a short amount of time so far has changed my experience and mindset.
I have met so many amazing girls who share the same interests especially in playing competitively and giving it our all on the field. It is nice to be a part of the softball club with school because we all have fun while still focusing on ourselves and school. I don’t feel consumed with softball and it does not surpass my focus on my studies. Lastly, the softball club has made me fall back in love with the game. Growing up I didn’t have the best coaches which is why I stopped playing which I started to regret. Yet, once I made the softball club team, I finally felt like I was home and comfortable. I missed the piece of me that I left behind and it is even better to be sharing it with these amazing girls now.
