Scottsburg Softball - A Tribute - Poem by Shelbie Hale

At the Scottsburg softball field
Where the wind hardly ever yields

There were a group of people who
Could always help me not feel blue

The 2014-2015 Warriorette softball team
In the sun, their bats would always gleam

With them, I never got to play
But would help as a manager any day

How I'd have loved to have gone through the line of high-fives
Then stand on the field and feel my senses come alive

But with only watching I was content
Eyes following the ball wherever it went

And sometimes going after it
Hoping no one would get hit

Though now the time has come to an end
I was able to make long lasting friends

In this town, no matter what may change
Surely one thing will always remain

Though my team and I may have to part
They'll forever remain within my heart

This is the poem that I wrote in honor of the amazing team I was part of my senior year. No matter how far I roam, I will always be your manager at heart...

    'I was able to make long lasting friends'

    sport makes lasting friendships, strange mixes sometimes make good teams
