I found my passion for softball last school year and joined the modified softball team at my school. I don't live in town, so my dad had to drive into town to pick me up almost every day. I started crunching numbers, with gas having been so expensive during softball season, and I just realized that my parents spent $197.76 just on gas for me to play softball for three months. Now, that is sacrifice.

Rina G., Secunderabad, India
