As I mentioned before, this is the first year for Megan to play on a competitive softball team, she’s definitely looking forward to it. For years, she’s just played for fun with a bunch of her friends from school, but in the last couple of years she’s gotten more into it and the win/loss column have developed more meaning for her.
I’ll have to admit, this is new territory for the Atkinson’s. For years I worked with Megan, up until she had the opportunity to work with a young lady who played softball for Mizzou. "Some baseball player taught you how to swing, didn’t they?" Ouch! She spent most of the winter fixing Megan’s "bad habits" and I haven’t commented on her swing since. We do spend time working on throwing and fielding, but that’s about it. The whole pitching/swinging thing is outside my scope.
But anyway, River City Ramage is made up of several girls from all over central Missouri (much like the Mud Dawgs). First tournament is this coming weekend in Columbia Missouri. I’d like to say the girls are ready –they’ve been practicing for a couple of months now, but I’m not sure. As I said earlier, this is our first experience so I’m not sure what to expect in the way of competation, but I know she’s excited and ready to play some ball.
I’ve updated this site, the navigation and carved out a section for Rampage. I’ll update and post photos as time and opportunity allow.
Good Luck Ladies! Fingers crossed for a winning season and… GO RAMPAGE!
