Connect the sports

The brunette twin was telling stories about her first softball practice when she said, "Oh yeah and Coach knew I play golf."

I said, "How?"

She replied, "When I hit the ball I followed through like I do when I hit the golf ball. He asked if I played golf because most girls don't follow through. He said I did a really good job."

It was the first time she realized skills from one sport impacted other things she might try. She was so proud of herself that it made me smile. She was so sure she didn't have any softball skills and it turns out she's been practicing her batting whenever she hits the golf ball. Oh, it's not exactly the same, but it's close enough that her coach complimented her batting and made her week.
