What a big year for this age group. Most of these Diamonds are headed into high school, where they will have to earn the respect of their high school coaches and teams. As coaches, our expectation is that the girls begin to broaden their horizons and play multiple positions. They should use this year to become more well-rounded softball players - they should have an understanding of the game from multiple perspectives.
