It's the top of the first inning, and the players energy is high.
We've got rookie Addie King on first, excited to play on the same field as her sister. So far this season she has made a habit of sending senior team members into the locker room to find Elli if she is not on the field. The coach told us before the game that she has had a talk with Addie about sticking with the rookies and not fraternizing with the more established players.
Senior team member Elli King is on third, where she is feeling confident of the fact that she already has friends from last years team returning. Elli is known for getting ready for each practice early, somedays waking up the coach, always laying out her uniform the night before, and practicing, practicing, practicing!
The coach had a great pre-season summer with her players, but is glad it only lasts 2 months.
The coach is also very proud of her team and knows they are all-stars!
We look forward to the Eagles winning the pennant.
