1: The point of the game is not how well the individual does but whether the team wins. That is the beautiful part of the game, the blending of personalities, the mutual sacrifices for group success. Even when you've played the game of your life, it's the feeling of teamwork that you'll remember. You'll forget the plays, the hits, and the scores, but you'll never forget your teammates.
2: Softball: There’s Nothing Soft About It! Life's a pitch Softball is for everyone. Fast-pitch is for athletes Friends don’t let friends play slow pitch. We don't wear cups, we win them. Winners make it happen, losers let it happen. Your balls may be harder, but mine are bigger | T-Shirt Sayings..

11: Lakeland softball, the 2010 Division 1 runner-up, was looking for its seventh consecutive district title, but was stymied by Hartland in a 1-0 loss. “It doesn’t feel real, honestly,” Lakeland senior Devan Olah said. “We expected to play better against them than the last time and we did. We gave it 110 percent.”
13: I hope that days come easy and moments pass slow, And each road leads you where you want to go, And if you're faced with a choice, and you have to choose, I hope you choose the one that means the most to you. And if one door opens to another door closed, I hope you keep on walkin' till you find the window, If it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile, More then anything, more then anything, My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it, To your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small, You never need to carry more then you can hold, And while you're out there getting where you're getting to, I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too, Yeah, this, is my wish. I hope you never look back, but ya never forget, All the ones who love you, in the place you left, I hope you always forgive, and you never regret, And you help somebody every chance you get, Oh, you find God's grace, in every mistake, And you always give more then you take. Oh More then anything, Yeah, and more then anything, My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it, To your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small, You never need to carry more then you can hold, And while you're out there getting where you're getting to, We hope you know we love you, and wants the BEST for you, Yeah, this, is Our wish.
