My youngest DD was playing her final tournament. We were at 18U AS A nationals when she hit her first home run (over the fence ). This was several years ago and she had either hit in the 3 or 4 hole since becoming part of the team. In addition she batted in the 4 hole as a four year starter in high school. When I remarked to one of the parents it was the first time they were shocked and didn't believe me at first and then thought back over the 3 years and could not recall it ever happening. There was no malice involved just surprise. The only reason the team decided to go to nationals that year was because they we're in Las Vegas. The previous years had seen us in places like Iowa, and south Dakota.
