PGSL Softball 2015

The sun is shining, the weather is warming, the trees are blossoming, my eyes are itching, and the nose is running. This must mean one thing – Spring is here and once again, it's softball season! The Pleasanton Girls Softball League (PGSL) season is in full swing, with opening day kicking off the season on 7 March 2015. The Senior Division consists of five teams from Pleasanton and one team from Livermore. The teams are pretty evenly matched, making for a very competitive division.

For the past six or seven years, I've either coached or actively helped out at practices and games. I've really enjoyed the quality time with my daughter and working with the other girls. It's been a pleasure watching them develop as softball players and mature into young women. Sports are an important part of a girl's life, as it teaches teamwork, sportsmanship, dedication, and a lot of other life lessons.

I'm an assistant coach this year, so I will have limited opportunities to take photos during the games. I may need to delegate my first base coach duties to someone for an occasional inning or two, so I can take some photos during a few games.

Here are a few photos from a recent game.
