WORTH IT | Softball is For Girls

We are really excited to introduce you to Randi, who will be helping us a get a better look "Inside the Fence" of the softball field. Randi is A LOT of things that make her perfect as a contributor here at Softball is For Girls.... She is a former cut-hroat travel ball competitor, the DAUGHTER of a legendary softball coach, a 'retired' COLLEGE softball player, the wife of a former high level travel ball coach, a HIGH SCHOOL coach (softball & lacrosse), a High School teacher, and a mama to two beautiful girls. So, shes been "Inside that fence" for a long time and sees and hears and KNOWS things that clearly....we just can't or don't or shouldn't know...She is that person that the players go to and say "Please, Randi - I know my mom wants me to pitch but can you please put me in the outfield?" She is also insightful, empathetic yet EXTREMELY CUT-THROAT COMPETITIVE (like, will do anything to win) - and has a great understanding of what it takes to do just that. So Welcome, Randi!

I thought about the kindness of strangers I've encountered in my life as a confused teenager who made an impact.
