It's a game of making great pitches at the right time, being opportunistic by getting a run at the right time and playing good defense.
Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.
It's always about wanting to one-up myself from the day before. There's never an absolute 100% perfect performance, but going out and striving for that perfect performance is what keeps me going.
A true champion works hard and never loses sight of her dreams.
What I love about the game is that the game doesn't know who is supposed to win.
When I step into the batter's box, the fans, the noise, the cheers, they all disappear. For that moment, the world is just a battle between me and the pitcher. And more than anything, I want to win.
A true champion is someone who wants to make a difference, who never gives up, and who gives everything she has no matter what the circumstances are. A true champion works hard and never loses sight of her dreams.
The minute you start talking about what you're going to do if you lose, you have lost.
A tie is like kissing your sister.
I always felt that my greatest asset was not my physical ability, it was my mental ability.
We go out and work hard. We play this game with emotion and love. Coach always says 'Emotionally, physically, mentally - come to the field prepared.' Because if you don't bring that to the field, you're going to get beat.
We're going to step on the field knowing that every team we're going against is going to push their game to that whole new level that we probably hadn't seen. ... We've just got to be ready to step up with them
By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.
It's not how good you are, it's how good you want to be.
Hell, no! A tie is like kissing your sister!
When we played softball, I'd steal second base, feel guilty and go back.
The will to win is important, but the will to prepare is vital.
If a tie is like kissing your sister, losing is like kissing you grandmother with her teeth out.
Champions aren't made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them-a desire, a dream, a vision.
The winners in life think constantly in terms of I can, I will, and I am.
