Sydney Angle – Moore Girls SoftBall
Annual Amanda Memorial – All Star Tournament
At our annual tournament in 2013, we played in memory of Sydney Angle. All the wonderful softball families in Southern California raised over $2,000, which was sent directly to the family. Thanks also to Fox Sports West for including our story in their 4th of July piece aired before the Dodger Game.
Nine year old Sydney Angle played many positions on her Oklahoma Bring It ’04 softball team. She made catches in the outfield, great snags at third and shortstop. But Syd’s dream was to be a pitcher, just like her hero Keilani Ricketts of the World Series Champion Oklahoma Sooners. She got her chance on May 17th, 2013, when her 8U team played up to 10U. Sydney recorded 5 strikeouts in her first outing.
Sadly, she didn’t get a chance to enter the circle again. On May 20, 2013, Sydney Angle lost her life during the tragic tornado that hit Plaza Towers Elementary school in Moore, OK. Syd’s family also lost their home in the storm.
Syd was a funny, fun-loving, competitive, adventurous girl who loved so many things. Besides softball she loved playing wall-ball and riding her rip stick. She loved any kind of animal, from her furry dogs to the giant snakes at the zoo. She loved to build with legos. She loved eating ribs and giant pickles and even asparagus. Everything Sydney did, she did 100%, like working to win her first tournament MVP award in early May. Sydney lived her life with enthusiasm, with joy, and never hesitated to “Bring It”, both on and off the softball field.
