"If you are going to be a champion, you must be willing to pay a greater price."-- Bud Wilkinson

TO BE THE BEST...you have to have the PASSION, the DRIVE, and the LOVE for the game...without it, you're just another player on the field!!!

Will & Determination!


“Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them; a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have last minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, they have to have the skill, and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.”

"Champions do not become champions when they win the event, but in the hours, weeks, and years they spend preparing for it."

“Before you ask me why my legs are bruised, my knees are scarred, and my nails are broken, realize: I hit the drop ball, take the shot at home plate, and swing for the fence on a full count. I don't play with Barbies, and I don't skip rope. If the game was easy, I wouldn't play. 2 teams, 4 bases, 7 innings. What do I love, what fuels my fire? It's simple. I play fastpitch softball.”

"I AM A CHAMPION !!! Believe it and you will become it!"
