'Playing with heart’ was the evident mark of the Philippines’ Softball team as they struck it to the Championship game last August 6-11 of the Big League Softball World Series in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
This same motivational tactic and style was used by the coach when her players faced their Asian rivals during the Asia Pacific Qualifying Tournament last July 4-14 in Guangzhou, China. “Kung ayaw niyo nang lumaban, sabihin niyo lang. Madaling umayaw. Ano, lalaban pa ba kayo o hindi na?” That was a most effective way to regain their focus every time the team seemed to be losing their spirit and will to win. Team captain Mary Chris Gidalanon remarked, “Kapag sinasabi na ‘yon ng coach namin, nakakapuntos kami kaagad”.
