    I have one child...daughter...28 y/o now, math teacher, mother of a beautiful little girl, and carrying twins due in October. :rolleyes: If I ever had my hopes set on a son (and honestly I s'pose I did) those thoughts melted the first time I held her. Like you, I couldn't be more proud of my daughter. Looking forward to reports through the season. Rick

    That's awesome !!!!

    My daughter excelled in sports... equestrian mostly (big surprise :p) , college hockey team as well.

    Sports and activities keep kids out of trouble, has been my experience.

    A few trophy shelves/walls and some ribbon racks add alot of punch !!

    Sounds like a proud papa for sure, and you should be! I've got two sons (15 and 12) whom are both amazing young men, but its my 8yr old daughter who's the fiery athlete of the household.........those girls seem to wrap you around their finger and there's not changing it either! She's a daddy's girl to boot.....

    Like fossil said, keep us posted on her progress this year. I'm betting she'll make you very proud!

    It makes it a lot funny when these girl have taken a beaten for years. Its finally there time and the got a heck of a team and less than 100 girls in the whole high school. These big schools just dont know yet whats coming there way. Biggest lose so far 1a them 5 to 0. They could very well win the state just depends where they decide to put them. 3,4,5 a and there will give it a great run. Dont think this coach would care if they get a 1 a. :)

    I talk to this coach before she even went to this school. He said any game anywhere and a 30 games minimum. He will play his best player and looking to win. I knew he was telling the truth. With rain outs last two weeks his goal has not changed. Even the back of the line up is really starting to take off. Look Out State we got a ball team here!

    Sounds like Baylee must be known as a pretty consistent threat at bat, no? How do the defenses typically react to her coming up?
