I was so inspired with your article. My daughter has been playing baseball since she was 5 years old. She is 13 years old and has dominated her little league in Elk Grove for 8 years. She is a pitcher, catcher and plays first base. She had the best pitching record in the league at 10 years old, 17 strikes out of 18, 11 home runs including denting a score board and will be trying out for her high school baseball team. The consenus of the community is confident she will make the team and pursue her goals. Loved your article!
