About

cropped-img_20140101_2219311.jpgKayla Lombardo, 22, Fordham Ram, college softball player, women’s sports storyteller, avid sports fan, writer, reader, thinker.

And that’s just the beginning of it. As a lover of both sports and words, I originally started this blog to capture my 2014 college softball experiences, both on and off the field, through the written word. I documented Fordham Softball’s ups and downs throughout our trek to several states and universities, as we successfully pursued our second-straight Atlantic 10 championship and a trip to the NCAA Tournament.

Since that season ended, this blog has served as a platform to document news and stories about women’s sports, while also providing first-hand accounts regarding the female student-athlete experience. My aim is to serve as a voice for women in sports, and to do so in a way that not only furthers the advancement of female athletes, but also moves human hearts in the process.

I’m not sure what I’ll do, but — well, I want to go places and see people. I want my mind to grow. I want to live where things happen on a big scale.”

-F. Scott Fitzgerald

    fyi there is another female playing baseball in 2015-16 in college….Shannon Crawford (Bettendorf, Iowa) at Hope College in Holland, Michigan. You may also be interested in looking up in the SI archives a feature done on Molly McKesson of St. Petersburg, Florida who received the first NCAA scholarship for baseball at Christian Brothers University in Memphis, an NCAA Division II school.
