Emily Parsons stepped up to the plate with a softball bat more than half her size.

That didn't stop her from hitting the big yellow softball down the third baseline and running to first base for a base hit.

The Victoria Girls Softball Association girls teams that were 10-and-younger played their final games of the season in May.

"For some teams, if they win, it may mean they will be in first place," said VGSA Vice President Mike Craft.

Craft noted that winning isn't all the girls care about when they step out onto the field.

"They really enjoy being out here. It's a great opportunity for them to learn the fundamentals while having fun at the same time," said Craft.

Whether the team places first or not, each girl will walk away with a medal and the fundamentals to play softball next season.
