Carli's Season


Carli's softball season ended on Tuesday night.  I was kind of bummed to have missed her last game, but Ava had a game in Alto while Carli was in Troup.  Keith said she did a great job on her last game.  They won and she played well.


This softball season was a real challenge for Carli.  Carli is very much a "rules" child.  If there is a rule you must follow it and in softball she understands the game and what should be going on.  She struggled this year with trying to understand why everyone else did not get the "rules."  It was a learning experience for us all.  She tended to over think sometimes and would get pretty down on herself if she perceived she should have done one thing but failed at trying.  So we learned, we cried and we struggled a bit. 

The Diamond Diva's were a young team and as the season progressed you could see the girls learning from their experience.  Carli started the year off on shortstop, played outfield a time or two and ended the year at 2nd base.  Her hitting was up and down but she ended on a good note.  It's all mental with Carli and once she overcomes the mental part of the game and learns to positive self talk herself she will have a more successful season.  Overall, if you ask Carli if she likes playing softball, she will tell you yes, but not in games b/c everyone won't follow the rules.  :/ 



So our plans for the off season are to try to put together a fall ball team or find a little tournament team to play on that will help continue to teach Carli the game but also show her it can be fun even if you have to work hard.
