Automatic TRANSCRIPT

I. I'm here you got you know. I have two daughters. Both were competitive at different levels at the table yeah. They were raised by the parents so it was like how come she's like pissed off right now and then they'll be tomorrow so it was great. Yeah and I'm like I don't know just I think it's something you're born 'cause I'm I'm pretty competitive and my wife's like whatever. Oh you okay now my Mesa care very competitive. Yeah my my daughter to school. That are older. Now they're whatever so. Let me ask you this when because there's not a professional softball play in the US right now. There is in the National League but it kind of goes up and down how her because a Latina shut down with the Olympics. Coming up some national teams with auditees. So I think they're about five or sixteen right now here in the other like hugh three very is in. You're definitely not doing it for the money. I mean that is the money good and and I don't know professional softball. It depend on a team that you go with. I didn't play on the US. But funniest I retire from softball. I finished college and only resign. Originally moved to Italy was because it was more money than I was making working now. No working at the university in video and they're working TV. I made more money if I went to Italy But and then my whole life trajectory changed from that. But there's somebody in it. It's you do exactly as you said you do it because you love it Just want people thinking. Oh professional officer. Oh you're probably making what a million too many air like Natta It was a huge deal when Monica Habit. Incredible pitcher multiple and thin like even with softball being out of the Olympics. This is how she's been in the game and she Olympic Team. This year they She signed a one million dollar contract. That was both your run. And that's the first one that history of our sports so the importunate reality is that if you WANNA be a pro softball player you have to have during the off time. So No OUGHTA girls that are teachers trainers coaches. Ali above whatever they can find right exactly a corporate sponsorship of deal if you get a mizuno or one of the manufacturers do they Sponsor the players knew that those are all on personal so much with the team. Usa Pride. That's okay down in Florida the space coast complex because they have multiple sports. They have more of a business model and I'm going to believe that they have some that sponsorship but like the girls are individually sponsors because at the greatest way to get your gear shown as the crow girls wearing it or but there isn't near as much TV coverage of it it's not on es pin it sometimes on CBS. Close off ball. So it's a little bit of a social media and everything comes in so in that regard personal sponsorships not so much the corporation and the teams I gotcha. Hopefully that changes exactly be a game changer. For the sport why it's interesting when us. Soccer Pre David Beckham. I think Landon Donovan was the the big name and you were probably like eighth grade or something like that happen. But I remember like Landon. Donovan was a highest paid player on the galaxy and he was just like one hundred and fifty thousand a year. Or maybe maybe there's a quarter million but most of the guys were making thirty five forty thousand dollars a year right on the being in. La that not gonNa you at a nice. Yeah than Becky and Beckham's getting eight million million a year. Whatever he was getting in so the disparity was the guy. You're passing the ball to Beckham's making thirty grand a year. You know it's like I mean. There was a huge disparity in pro soccer at the time. Yeah it's wild but it's like it's getting better and it takes time so I'm just hoping that those positive changes work with softball to what was the biggest change travel wise playing playing for Italy. I mean we're we're all all the Games in Italy or was it all within Europe so I was playing the Italian Professional. You can so they were all in Italy and then I got hired to play like the European which that year was held Italy but are gone offers been flying. Netherlands dot one actually did play for the Netherlands but The biggest change. Well we practice.
