"My story might be slightly different from what you are probably used to hear of. It all started back in summer 2010 when I already 15 years old. My dad found a branch in the beach that looked a lot like a baseball bat. "I've heard about that sport before" he said, "let's see if it is possible to hit that pine cone"....

Softball in Greece is not popular. It was at its peak leading to the 2004 Olympic Games. We had good players and the tournaments were competitive. Nowadays, softball, like all amateur sports in Greece, lack financial aid and as a result, the Greek Softball Federation can not organize official tournaments. Teams have d...

My teammates tend to workout in the gymnasium during most of the year until the snow melts and its warm enough to go ou...

My name is Imane Alou Issa and I am 23 years old. My passion for softball started as soon as I was born since I lived across from a softball field.

My name is Brenda Beers and I am 20 years old. I started playing “peanutbal” (Kids play this in preparation for base- or softball) when I was 7. I got in touch with the game because of a coach who came to my elementary school for a clinic. A few kids from my class and I loved the game, so we started a team at Double S...

I started playing softball when I was 13 years old. I had a coach from South Africa come to my school for a physical education lesson. I had never heard of softball in my life, but I pretty much fell in love with it instantly. I loved how different it was to the many other sports I had played growing up.

Fast pitch sof...

My name is Evie Craig and I am a 16-year old Danish softball player. The life of dingers and diamonds began many, many years ago, when I was a small, chubby girl.

Hi everyone!  My name is Tihana and I am a softball player from Croatia.
Let me tell you about softball here. Croatia isn't a country where people know what softball is.
When people here ask you what sport you play, and you answer “softball” they give you the “what is that” look . So, you start to explain that it is v...

Hi, I am Veneta, I practice softball since 2012, but have done a lot of other sports before, unprofessionally.

I started by chance. Coming back from tennis friends of mine invited me to join their practice.

Honestly, I didn’t have much desire to do so as I didn’t understand the game at all. But the moment I touched the...
