Softball was a sport created on Thanksgiving Day in the year of 1887 by twenty young men. The sport has made history throughout the United States, and has grown more popular along with baseball. Brashier’s Softball coach of four years, Thomas Robinson has dedicated his time to share his knowledge of the sport and encourage students through the game of softball. This year, many individuals have shown interest in trying out for the team.

“I don’t know why so many students are coming out. I would like to say it’s because we have built a strong reputation of being a competitive team,” says Coach Robinson.

This year at Brashier, the administration was concerned for the softball team because of the cuts.

“This year we only have three seniors returning and we only have a total of six players returning from last year,” says Robinson. “I think when the final team is established, most of our players will be Freshmen and that has never been the case in the past.  It’s exciting to have so many great first time softball players coming out.”

Softball is a sport that may not be mentioned regularly, but it is still a popular sport that individuals do enjoy playing. The more individuals that join the sport, the more popular the sport will be. Same thing goes for if there is not a lot of players playing the sport, the less popular the sport will be.

“If more softball players get in, it will be more popular. If less get in, less people will play,” says Senior Madison Dudley.

Softball is an exciting sport here at Brashier. There may be a small amount of upperclassmen participating, but there are a lot of new faces joining as well.

“I played softball once and I loved it. The first time I met the coach I knew he was probably one of the best coaches I’d have, so I definitely wanted to be on the team,” says Freshman Alana Atkins.

In any sport, every team feels a sense of connection with each team member and a connection to the sport they are playing.

“I believe many of them feel a strong connection to our softball program and our school,” says Robinson.

Brashier’s softball team this year will once again make us proud with yet another season playing for us.

“I expect us all to have great teamwork skills because our coach expects us to and we all work very well together. We can win together and have a great experience,” says Atkins.
