"Its supposed to be hard, if it wasn't hard everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it great."
 
You must sacrafice, train, and do everything possible to put yourself in a position to win. But if you consider second or third a failure, I feel sorry for you.
 
I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands. You have to have one hand free to throw something back.
 
The game begins the moment you forget your playing.
I dont want to play golf. When I hit a ball I want someone to go chace it.
 
You spend your life gripping a softball, but in the end it was the other way around the whole time.
 
Play for the name on the front of your jersey, not the name on the back.
 
When the game is over leave it on the field.
 
A winner is that person who gets up one more time then he was knocked down
 
I walked out on the field. The lines already drawn and the stands empty. I look around and it is just me and the field. You smell the grass and you hear the fans. You think of all those people chanting and all of your team mates cheering. Your all bruised and bloody yet you realize that this is softball; this is what its all about.
 
A team is knowing whan a ball is hit over your head you have enough faith in the girl behind you not to turn around becuase you know shes got it.
 
The best thinga bout pain is that it lets you know that your not dead yet.
 
The worst thing to hear from your coach when you dont execute or do your job is silence.
 
It doesnt sparkle but I guard this diamond with my life.
 
Champions are someone bent over, drenched in sweat, to the point of exhaustion; when nobody else is watching.
 
Though we ended up 1-13, it was a terrific season. You wouldnt be able to tell by our record; by that one win at our last game, but if you were there every day, every practice like I was; you would be able to seet hose 15 girls worked everyday, to their fullest. Some had neverplayed before, some for 8 or 9 years. I was one of those 9 year girls. It doesnt matter how much experience you have, or if you are better, it matters how much you love softball and how much you put into the game your playing. Always remember that effort triumphs.
 
Softball is not a one women sport, you have to have faith in those other 8 girls out there with you, becuase you are all playing the same game. You win as a team, you lose as a team.
 
Throw your heart over the fence and the ball will go with it.
 

When did the logo on your shoe become more important than the heart on your sleeve? When did the word "renegotiate" move from the business section to the sports page? Where have all the champions gone? You'll find us where the lights don't shine and the only contract you sign is with yourself. You got what it takes to be a champion?

I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot...and I missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that's precisely why I succeed.

You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them. - Michael Jordan

A coach is someone who always makes you do what you don't want to do, so you can be who you've always wanted to be.There is no glory in practice, but without practice there is no glory.

A winner is someone who sets their goals, commits themselves to those goals and then pursues their goals with all the ability that God has given them. That requires someone who believes in himself or herself, who will make self-sacrifices, work hard, and maintain the determination to perform at the best of their ability. -C. Leeman Bennett

You are a direct reflection of me. When you lose, I am a loser. When you fight, I am a fighter. When you win, I am a winner. When you and I work together, we are a team. -Anonymous high school coach

 In sport, part of the game is accepting the umpire's call, no matter how hard that might be. Sometimes the calls go your way, and sometimes they don't. -Dr. Dot Richardson

 I am the person you'll see everyday training when everyone else has gone home. I live for the one moment of glory when I save that goal or sink that 3-point shot and score the winning basket. I am the sport, I am the glory, and nothing can change that. I am an athlete, no one can forget that. -Alexa Wilkinson

 Strive to be the best you can be...focus, watch, listen, and learn. Try never to be satisfied with 'good enough'...and above all, love what you do--share that passion with others, and always stay humble. Nobody likes a 'big head' no matter how good you are. -Robby Naish

People always think kids' sports are about fun. The kids have fun playing, but that's not why they play. The real reason they play is to find out about who they are...It's a vehicle for self-discovery. -Paul Clements

 If you don't play fast-pitch, don't say you play softball.

Softball is for everyone. Fast-pitch is for athletes.

If you face a worthy opponent acknowledge their skills and show them yours.

If what you did yesterday still looks big to you today, then you must not have done anything today.

Play the ball; don't let the ball play you.

Don't think you’re to good to sit and root for your team, be a team player.

Fresh cut grass, dragged dirt, ring of a bat, a diving catch, a blocked ball, sweating, bleeding and sliding into home. Not a bad way to spend a few hours.

Did you ever get that gut feeling in your stomach when you’re about to walk on the field? I figured out what it was, it's that feeling that your gotta win.

When life hands you lemons, make lemonade. But when a pitcher hands you a changeup, smack it right down her throat.

Sometimes the only way to tell its practice is by what you're wearing.

Sometimes the only thing fair in life is a ball hit between 1st and 3rd.

You can't steal second with one foot on first.

Before you ask me why my legs are bruised, my knees are scared and my nails are broken. Realize I hit the drop ball, take the shot at home plate and swing for the fence. I don't play with Barbie’s and I don't jump rope. If the game were easy, I wouldn't play. 2 teams, 4 bases, 7 innings, 1 game...FASTPITCH SOFTBALL

I can go from 1st to 3rd on a single to center, break up a double play at 2nd, score the winning run with a head first slide into home, and still leave the field looking like a lady.

Pain is temporary, guys dig scars, but glory lasts forever.

If your out there to look pretty then get off the field, it's not about looking pretty it's about sweat, practice, practice, practice, and then the slide into home that wins you the game.
