There is a definite home-field advantage for Estancia High junior Rachelle Reynolds in softball.
The Eagles moved varsity fields this year. They now play their games closer to Jim Scott Stadium, right next to the school weight room.
More people can see the Eagles' games now. One of them is Rachelle's mother, Raquel. Her father, Steven, is able to drive the family van all the way up to right behind the backstop.
It's special for Rachelle Reynolds, who everyone knows as "Ray," to have her mother in attendance. Usually she watches the game from the van.
"When she comes I always feel like I have to hit a home run for her, so I can show her how much it means to me that she's here," Ray said. "She likes to sleep during the day a lot, so I'm just glad she gets all the energy up to come and watch my games."
