first year of middle school ball, playing with her older sister.......started as a 6th grader in CF, only non-eighth grade starter......no fear (she saved a game with a running over the shoulder catch in the first game of the season.....full sprint, 2 run lead with bases loaded, bottom 7th, 2 out)
Great action shots! You didn't ask but I am gonna toss this out there. Those knee savers are supposed to be worn around the ankles, and in that position creates a pinch point and creates more stress on the knees. After attending a NECC, my DD threw hers away. Dr. Farrago made it very clear that the Knee Savers MUST be worn on the lower strap settings to avoid putting pressure on the back side of the knee joint. He gave the example of placing a tennis ball behind your knee and duct taping it there and then attempting to crouch. The damage done from placing those pads directly behind the knee will far outweigh the damage done over time while playing the position without them.
