“Off the Baseline and Onto the Field”

This past Sunday, the Ballgirls traveled down to Sports at the Beach in Georgetown, DE. It was a two hour ride for most of us but it was a great opportunity to get a chance to catch up with everyone. We all have very different schedules and are not usually in the same place at the same time. I had a lot of fun playing in the softball game and getting to cheer on the riders from the Southern Delaware Therapeutic Riding Group. Just seeing a smile on their face was definitely worth the trip down there!

Although not many of the fans may realize, the ballgirls participate in charity softball games throughout the year. It’s a great way for bonding outside the stadium as a team, and we can finally see each other play in a game! We have all grown up playing competitive softball, so as you can imagine, it is hard to ignore our first instincts of making a play on a ball coming towards us during the Phillies games. Getting back on the field felt great! We played our first charity game with the Southern Delaware Therapeutic Riding group, and I couldn’t have asked for a better afternoon. The entire organization was wonderful, and I would love to work with them again!

The charity softball game we played in was an amazing experience. The people there were so nice and the experience for the kids was awesome. I was happy that all the ballgirls could make the kids day just by being there and playing softball with them. The softball game was a great way to bring family and friends together for a great cause!

This charity softball game was so much fun! We were able to meet many great people including one young man named Sasha. He was so full of energy and was making us laugh the entire game. He not only cheered for his team but for our team as well. No matter what the outcome of the game was, we all had a blast being able to play at Sports at the Beach. The little things like seeing a big smile on kids’ faces or hearing them tell everyone how excited they are because they got our trading cards are only two of the many reasons of why we love our job.

Our charity softball game was a ton of fun! It was such a great experience and it felt incredible to be a part of such a great organization. Being able to put a smile on each of the kid’s SDTR3faces brightened my day and made my experience that much more wonderful! I am looking forward to working with other great charities and making a difference.

This past weekend was so much fun! It was great getting to play ball, and even better seeing the smiling faces of the riders from SDTR after their at bat. It warmed my heart to see how happy the organization was to have us there. The weather was beautiful for a pre-game photo shoot on the beach, too!
