Despite recent wintry weather, the Mariner softball team has launched into spring. The team kicks off its season on Tuesday with a conference game against SoHi in Soldotna.
Last week the players could be found on the east corner of the Homer High School turf field, practicing fielding around a makeshift diamond. As the neon ball flew from one base to the next, words of encouragement followed close behind.
Positivity, the players explained, is integral to the team’s ethos and strategy.
