Annual Softball Clinic Highlights
“Buy me some peanuts and Apple Jacks…” Who wouldn’t have smiled at this new rendition of Take Me Out to the Ballgame that was sung by a young girl at our softball clinic last Sunday at Flanigan Center http://nsplsoftball.com/home/default.asp?menu_category=Home&menuid=404&parid=404] in Newtown Square? This event is a ballgirl tradition that we always look forward to because we get to spend an afternoon hanging out with some pretty cool 6-12 year olds. The girls arrive decked out in their Phillies gear and ready for a fun day of softball.
We split up into stations and allowed each group of girls to spend 20 minutes at each spot. All the groups got to pick their own team names, and I knew it would be an exciting day when my first group called themselves the Chunky Funky Hunky Monkeys. After we stretched out, the girls put their softball skills to the test.
At the end of the clinic, all of the girls got to take home their own whammy hands, and we quizzed them with some Phillies trivia. I was especially impressed by the girls who knew how many games the Phillies play in a season. You could tell they really knew their stuff. With such great softball skills and a lot of love for the Phillies, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a few rising ballgirls come from this group. Just a few more years, and we’ll be looking for them on the sidelines!
