Both JV and varsity softball teams of 2017 think this year is going to be the season of success, with tons of great players.

“We can do really well if we have a good infield and hitting!” said JV softball pitcher and sophomore Caroline Brady.

Out of 32 CHS students surveyed , 20 claimed that they would rather go to see a Catonsville baseball game.  Baseball players like to support their teams, while softball players usually prefer to support theirs.

The crowds at softball games are usually filled up with parents of the players, while baseball games have a larger population of watchers.

Everyone on the team loves their teammates and how nice and supportive everyone on the team is to each other.

“They’re all fun and like to be around each other,” explained Brady.

“I love my team!” exclaimed JV player and sophomore Morgan Waltz.

Teammates enjoy games more than practices.  The competition gives the game more of an edge, and games are just more fun than practices in general.

Some think that baseball is a faster moving game, and others have more friends on the baseball teams that they want to support.

“People underestimate players’ abilities and aren’t as interested in softball,” suggested JV softball player and sophomore Riley Sherwin.

“I would go to a softball game because they don’t get enough credit,” sophomore Cally McClure disclosed.

Lots of people go to the games for the boys themselves.  Everyone has heard of the renowned/illustrious “baseball booty,” which can prompt more people to attend the game.

“Baseball is a cute sport,” said JV softball player and sophomore Katherine Anderson.

Softball and baseball are both great sports, so both should be recognized equally.
