My story might be slightly different from what you are probably used to hear of. It all started back in summer 2010 when I already 15 years old. My dad found a branch on the beach that looked a lot like a baseball bat. I've heard about that sport before he said, let's see if it is possible to hit that pine cone. Surprisingly it was not that hard at all and it was a very first step for my dad to become a coach and for me to become a player. Back then I only knew about baseball and was usually surrounded by boys during practices. It took us a year or two to get familiar with softball and other existing softball players in Lithuania. Since then this sport became everything to me, the game itself and people with the same passion as me.
