#9 in Action

Ok, so I'm a bit proud and figure she deserves her own post.

This is about my sister, Hillary.

We are working on getting her a nice little scholarship for college to play softball on.

Since its the wrong season for High School sports, she is again playing Baseball with the boys.

Tuesday they played their first game and as a Junior (girl none the less, if you haven't figured it out) she was the varsity starter at 2nd base.

Now normally in softball this is one of her main positions she plays, but to make the varsity team as a starter is just SWEET!!

Hillary got to bat 3 times in the Varsity game, striking out the first time (although she did hit a foul ball first), the second time she got a hit plus an RBI. Unfortunatually its a bit longer between bases in Baseball than Softball, and she was thrown out at 2nd on the next hit.

Her third time up, the Manzanola pitcher must have been scared and walked her!

They won that game, but I don't remember the score.

For the JV game she played Left Field. Which in itself says something as that is not a position to take lightly!!

She also hit off BOTH pitches in the JV game as well!!

So, just wanted to boast about her and tell her HAPPY 17th BIRTHDAY tomorrow on the 30th!!
I love you and am so proud of you!!
