For those of you who dont know, me and my brother and dad coach Roy High softball. The ONLY reason I took the job 2 years ago was because I knew that this year would come and my beautiful niece would come up to play. She is here now and it is fun....kinda. Having three people to yell at her and correct every tincy tiny thing she does can be a hard life in high school. But I guess it pays off.
Yesterday MaCauley threw her first no hitter of her high school career. I swear I cant remember throwing that good for a long time after....if ever. This wasnt even against that bad of a team, Skyview was ranked 3rd in the state last week and she beat them 10 to nothing. I am just so proud of all the hard work and determination she has put in, not to mention all the crap she gets from having to play for her family. Poor girl.
Sometimes it is so hard to watch her pitch, I just want her to be happy, and I remember a lot of the time thinking that pitching was not such a fun game. I remember when she was little telling her that second base was a cool position and she should just stick to that....she didnt. It was crazy watching her play on the field that I played on 10 years ago, she even had this pony flip that I swear she just picked up yesterday. Maybe she is trying to be like me. I want her to be much better than that.
I am so proud of her. She is my role model.
