I have been playing in the conference for close to 10 years now. Been there, done that, seen it all. To say softball has been an absolute passion for myself is an understatement. But the drive and the “why” has reached an all time low.
Between the selfish backstabbing teammates, dirty bats, rampant PEDs, shady dishonest bat brands, inconsistent disillusioned teams, and the other misc drama combined with the regular conference grind (travel, time away from work, friends and family, the work it takes to stay on top of your game, etc) it can be very disheartening and demotivating. It’s just hard to find something to truly get behind in the softball world anymore
Curious what other players thoughts and feelings are with this
