the truth.

"Baseball is what gets inside you.  
It's what lights you up, you can't deny that."
-A League of Their Own, 1992

ernest and i went to our hometown minor league team's game last thursday.  the san antonio missions feed into the san diego padres, and every thursday they feature a $1 night.  it was a lot of fun, and of course got me missing the diamond like crazy.  i played softball from age 5-19 and loved everything about the game.  nothing beats the rush i had when i played fastpitch.  playing softball taught me so much about teamwork and discipline.  i'm sad that this year there won't be olympic softball.  i know a lot of young girls look forward to that, and look up to team usa, hoping that one day they'll be the ones representing our country on the diamond.
