Alexis van OoyenThe Cup Player

“You may think you have seen everything in softball until you go to another country and see what they can do. It was cool to experience the different cultures the world has while also playing the sport I love. Definitely not a trip to miss. My Grandparents migrated from the Netherlands so it was incredible to find out where they came from while gaining lots of memories of my own. This trip allows you to bring back so many memories and thousands of pictures that will last forever. I am so thankful for it. ”
