Inside The Dugout With Alissa Haber

Feb. 10, 2010

Greetings Cardinal Fans!

Alissa Haber here; however, I'm more commonly known on the field as Habes. I can't believe I'm saying this (or rather typing it), but in a few short hours, the Stanford Softball season officially begins! As soon as we step out on the field at the University of Hawaii on Thursday, our quest for a national championship begins. I couldn't be more excited!

But this anticipation is a little bittersweet. For me, Rosey, and Shannon, this season is our last go-around here on The Farm. The day that we play our last game is always a thought in the back of my mind. But, nevertheless, we are all very excited and proud to wear Stanford across our chest for one more year.

That being said, I know that we want our last game wearing the Cardinal uniform to be in Oklahoma City at the end of the year playing for the national championship, and, in that respect, I can't wait for this first game to get here and for the adventure to begin! Our team is so talented, has worked extremely hard, and we are all very eager to begin competing. Our goal as the season opens: take it one game at a time. If we continue to work hard every day, and have a little fun while we're at it, the sky is the limit. Plus, opening up the season in Hawaii, the first time in Stanford Softball history, isn't too bad a way to kick off what I believe will prove to be a great year.

I could type on and on about all the great girls on this year's team, and the great talent that they all possess. But frankly, I'm just going to let them do the talking this weekend. And we may be out in the middle of the Pacific, but that doesn't mean you're out of the loop. Be sure to keep up with all the latest info on

Hopefully next time I check in we'll have some good wins under our belt, and I'll have a nice tan! Until next time, Aloha!
