The Ellsworth Softball Team held a hit-a-thon raising funds for equipment. Each player had 100 swings at 55 miles per hour pitches from the pitching machine. WDEA's Chris Popper was even to face 10 pitches!

It's obvious the girls are much, much better hitters than I am! It's obvious that I need a bigger bat! It's also obvious that I'm not cut out to even get into a batting cage against 55 mile per hour pitching. I'm just happy I didn't get hurt!
