Alicia Field, 12, of Brooksville practices hitting softballs tossed by her instructor Ernie Chatman of Brooksville on Monday at Tom Varn Park in Brooksville. Field, a Hernando Christian Academy student, has been taking private lessons from Chatman to get ready for the upcoming season. "She's made a good bit of improvement," said Chatman. "When you have that passion for the game, it's easy to work with someone and see improvement with them."
