James deals with life out of the circle
All Heidi James has ever wanted to do on the softball field is pitch. She started out pitching at age 8 or 9 and pitched every year since.
This year, however, the PHS senior had to leave the pitching circle all together when an assortment of hip and rib ailments, left her physically unable to. When she tried to pitch, she faced a week of adjustments from the chiropractor just to get her body back together again.
“It completely shuts her down physically where she can’t even play the game. She can’t run, she can’t bend when it happens,” said her father and coach Bob James. “One of the tough things for me as a parent and coach, as many years I saw the kid try to perfect the craft of pitching and all the time and effort put into it and kind have it taken away by injury (is tough), but that’s part of the game and part of the things that happen with it.”
