Jillian is so funny about softball. She loves to tell people that she plays and that her team "wins" every game. But in reality she loves the snack that comes after the game and digging in the dirt during the game. She really has no idea what's going on around her and unless the ball comes right at her and disrupts her digging she won't go after the ball.
The coach has everyone play every position and when it was Jillian's turn to catch it was hilarious. She stood at home plate and refused to move. When the ball was thrown home she would watch it roll by her and then point to the coach for her to pick it up. The coach would hand it to Jillian and then she'd put it back on the tee. When I asked her why she made her coach pick up all the balls she said, "It was so heavy with all the stuff on me so I didn't want to move." Since then she flat out tells the coach, "No!" when he tries to have her catch during the game.
She does like hitting and running the bases though. She says, "I run like thunder because I'm super fast." It really is so comical to watch her games.
