Shelton’s Alexis Resto takes throws to first base and looks around the field. If she closed her eyes and refocused, Resto could very well be at the Nike Recreation Field. Eight of the Gaels have been playing softball together since they were 10 years old.
“It’s amazing being able to take these friendships since Little League and becoming a family,” Resto said. “That is how it works for us on the field. We have such an unbreakable bond. I don’t think anyone can understand what it means to be with each other for so long. It’s really special.”
