BALDWIN — Hailey Gallentine is a senior softball player hoping to help Baldwin’s softball team have success.

“It’s her first organized season in softball,” she said. “It just sounded like fun and gives me something to do.”

But the Baldwin coaching staff will be expecting plenty from Gallentine as she and her teammates prepare for the opener of the season.”

Gallentine has been working at first base and outfield during practices. She indicated her fielding and throwing will be strong.

Keeping her eye on the ball and being relaxed at the plate will be critical, she said.

Baldwin did not have a team last season and it will take more work outside and patience to have success, she said.

The enthusiasm has been high, she added.
