You all know, I love saying of all shapes and sizes. The softball world is loaded with all kinds of motivational and inspirational sayings. I love this one:
The name on the front of your jersey represents who you play for.
The name on the back of your jerseys represents who raised you.
Be sure you represent both the right way!
Very profound and a great reminder for all of our athletes.
When you step on the field, people are watching you. They are paying attention to you as a player and as a person. They are evaluating your performance, your effort, your attitude and how you respond to difficult time.
Players, you never know who might be watching you. Make sure you are happy they are!
