Don't Make Softball Everything



There are a lot of really smart people involved in the great game of fastpitch softball. It has been my pleasure to learn from many of them. Here is a list compiled from some of those really smart people and published by Denny at Tincher Pitching.  I’ve stolen the list but added a few of my own points to their very good article.


Softball is a great thing but it’s not the only thing. Stop making softball the focal point of your lives together. Stop acting like everything revolves around softball. If she only feels valued for what she is doing then how will she see herself when she is no longer doing it. Is she playing for her or for you?


How about, let’s go bowling, or to the movies, or for a walk or to a play? Let her know you love doing anything with her!
