What is your FAVORITE softball memory?

I have a lot of good memories, but one of the recent is playing softball at the Olympic Games. Coming in to pitch the last out in the 7th inning with two runners in and 1 run ahead vs Italy, to get a strikeout and secure Australia’s only win at the games.

You have to form a superhero ‘A’ team. Half of your team is you, and the other half is an animal. You both have super powers. Describe your sidekick, each of your superpowers and why that’s what you picked.

My super power is being able to make things invisible, I would use this to make the ball invisible to the batter, and once it’s passed them, make it visible for the umpire to call it a strike every pitch. My side kick animal is a Tiger because of a tigers fighting spirit and mongrel. Tigers super power is speed, with any contact they would be safe on base and be able to steal home. One power for offense, and one for defense.
