A first baseman on the Windermere Charge team, Samantha Ozim loves playing softball alongside her friends under head coach Patryk Ozim, who also happens to be her dad. Ozim helped cap off the season for the Charge by winning the District 14 Top Team Coach Pitch Tournament.
I was 7. My sister was playing, and I wanted to do what my sister was doing.
That you get to try out different positions to see which ones you like. I like it, because most of the time, you’re in the play. I would say the hardest part about playing first base is that if someone either over-throws it or throws it off to the side, and sometimes you can’t really get it.
Everybody is friendly, and most of the time, we’re always happy, and we want to play.
Probably my throwing. Sometimes, I don’t step in the right place, and my elbow isn’t up high.
My sister turns it on, but most of the time we watch the (Florida) Gators play softball.
It was really exciting and really fun, especially because all of my friends are on my team. At the beginning of the game when I was pitching, I was crying thinking we weren’t going to win. But then throughout the game, I was getting more excited, and then down, and then at the end, I was so excited that we won. I was jumping up and down with my friends.
Next year, I’m going to move up to minors, which is the older level. I’m kind of nervous, but I’m also kind of excited.
It’s pretty fun, because when we are at practice we talk about what we need to work on and then at home we work on it.
I like to play with my sisters, I like to do art, and I like to dance. I like to create things out of paper and stuff.
I’m more of a dog person, but I (like both of them).
