She's always been a good athlete and at 10 she is playing second base and center field on a boys 11 year-old team. She's working on pitching. She's gotten the game ball twice in two seasons of play - once for throwing a kid out at first base on a one-hopper to centerfield. She also plays on a girls soccer team and participates in her elementary school's weekly running club.
