A Messege from Hailey
In April of 2014, I picked up a softball for the first time in my life. Today, pretty much anyone and everyone who knows me would tell you that I am absolutely addicted to the sport. I work out six days a week, drive my family crazy reminiscing play-by-plays of my last tournament and the latest college games, and pester my parents to take me to the cages on nights when I don’t have practice. I am completely, absolutely, head-over-heels in love with this game. Yet as a high school junior in spring 2016, I am in the midst of only my third season of softball. This sudden passion seemed strange to me at first; I knew I loved softball, but I had no clue where this new desire to spend every day throwing and hitting on the brick dust had come from. But through a series of recent events, I believe that God gave me this love for softball for a reason. After college, I feel called to be a missionary in the U.S. working with kids through softball and baseball. I would also like to be a foster parent. Currently, I work as a nanny five days a week and love reading, writing, music, and kids.
I believe the factors that will set me apart as a hopeful college athlete are my work ethic, my passion, and my potential. I’m eager to be coached and improve my game. I would love to talk to you and learn more about your program! A popular quote in softball is, “Play for the little girl who fell in love with the game and never looked back.” For me, though, it would be more properly phrased, “Play for the young lady who fell in love with the game and never looked back.” That young lady is me.
