Don’t let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game…

Softball is more than just a sport. It’s a way of life for many individuals who have devoted their time and effort to the game. And, wow has this sport grown this past season in Polk County!

So sit back, grab a bat, and enjoy the story behind Polk Softball Rec. 8U girls. 

Their first year was challenging but they never gave up. They continued to work on their skills as a team, both on and off the field. The journey that these girls have taken from rookie to MVP is not easy.  

Some girls have been playing for years and some are new this year but at the end of the game, they are all buddies. Their friendship has carried over to school and church.    

We as parents see how essential this game can be.  It has shown that no obstacle is too great when you have a strong will and determined spirit.  

Don’t miss your opportunity to cheer them on in the homecoming parade, taking place on Friday, September 29, at 5 p.m. Wave and give a big smile— maybe they will throw you some candy!!!
