When she decided to take on softball, that alone was a tough task because she was playing nearly six games a week. The competition was different, the fields were completely different, and most of all, the ball size was a drastic difference. The transition, though, was just another Gabby had to file in her nine years of experience handling obstacles.
“Nine years of playing taught me a lot. I’m way more competitive and more confident. The transition to softball wasn’t bad. I really just miss the size of the ball the most. I hate the size of the softball,” Gabby said. “I definitely like baseball more, I haven’t truly transitioned yet. But whether it is baseball or softball, everyone has always been super supportive.”
This past year she was nominated for the Brownsburg All-Star team. Gabby batted .350 while playing two sports in one season and showed up to most games knocking line drives down the field lines, silencing all of the talking and snickering from her opponents.
“I hope they will see me as a baseball player that just played hard every game,” Gabby said.
