Learning from the Lakers
The Lake Superior State women’s softball team has been busy in the community teaching young players about the game. They hosted weekly hitting and pitching clinics in the weeks before Thanksgiving, and just completed a weekend camp which incorporated all aspects of the game. I was lucky enough to get my daughter to most of the clinics and the camp, in fact, I recieved a call from first year head coach Lori Shimasaki inviting her to join the clinics. She’s become a favorite among the college girls, even hanging out with them for awhile at the local hockey games. She’s having a lot of fun and this will hopefully inspire her to keep playing. She’s been playing baseball since she was 5, but next summer will be her first shot at softball if she decides to play. I’m keeping my fingers crossed, because she’s a good player and this could open up some doors for her in the future. Sorry about the low quality of the pics, but they were taken with my phone. The (ex)wife got the camera in the settlement.

Awesome! Keep encouraging her… that’s the best thing you can do. I get excited seeing our youth excited about exercise, so you’re doing the right thing. (PS, Sorry about losing the camera… at least you still got your dignity. The ex can’t ever take that away 😉
My kids are always active. I make sure the tv stays off, and they do something constructive. It’s a good way to spend time with them and make exercise fun. In the winter we’ll go ice skating and bowling, and sometimes go to the gym to play catch and hit off the tee. Thanks for the personal pick-me-up, too. It’s appreciated.
i bet they loved that day at school
