    Both of my kids had difficulty with concussions. The thing is, every concussion makes it easier to get another one. They each had 3 or 4 but only the last one occured while playing softball.hard to describe but Playing SS, dropping back into shallow center to make a catch, the CF ran into her and she hit the ground head first. Ihad seen ths happen another time too with a 3B dropping back into LF and kind of diving backward and her head bounced when it hit the ground. I was an AC and my DD wasnt paying due to a concussion. So because i learned about the testing protocol with my DD, i ran her through it and she did not pass. Her father, the other AC didnt want to hear it but she wound up with a concussion too.
    Im glad your DD was able to rise above the situation! Is she going to coach?

    I don't see her coaching a team. She does not enjoy coaching in games. I tried to recruit her to help me with our 16U team this summer and she is not interested. She is a good hitting instructor and will probably continue to do lessons and clinics.

    She is mature beyond her years to recognize the situation and make those decisions. There is life after softball. Thanks for sharing.
