There is no greater feeling than accomplishing a goal. A goal that took several people a little over a decade to accomplish. A goal that captured a city's heart. A goal that allowed you to be the first. Ever. In history. Seattle was starving for an athletic accomplishment. The University of Washington softball team was able to provide some of the nourishment. This book is a memoir and behind the scenes illustration of a season to remember. A season full of laughs, tears and hardware.
Bailey Stenson is a 2010 graduate from the University of Washington where she played for the Women's Softball team from 2007-2010. It was here where she developed a love for writing through her online blog Breakin' it Down with Bailey. Fans fell in love with her work and inspired her to document the 2009 (and recently the 2010) championship season. Bailey was born and raised in Washington so when the opportunity came to play for the Huskies, she took advantage of it. She was glad to stay home and be able to play 'in her back yard' in front of her friends and family, her all time #1 fanbase. The success of her team and teammates will forever rank in the top 3 most amazing things to ever happen! She is so thankful for all of the people she had the honor to meet over the course of her softball career and hopes to keep in touch with them for years to come. Currently, Bailey resides in Seattle where she is still writing and conducting interviews with athletes and past teammates. She hopes to travel more in the future and continue to write about her passion for experiencing new things! Look for more books in the future from this author because she is on a roll!
