New Softball Player
My 8 yr old daughter played softball for the first time this year on our city league.What a surprise when she turned out to be a great hitter! Her hitting qualities landed her on the All-Star team after the regular season closed. She is a great hitter but not very consistent. During one game she became very distracted by the opposing teams chatter(our league doesn't allow chatter so our players are not accustomed to it) and struck out at every bat. This fall and next year she will move up to a beginning fast-pitch. Her father is in the military and will probably be gone much of the seasons so he won't be able to help her much- I have never played softball in my life- WHat do I do to help her? I want to encourage her but I am clueless. Are there books, videos, etc for a promising beginner that I could use to help her? What do you advise for the nerves during batting? I don't want her to become discouraged because I can't help her. I appreciate any advice !
