While Aradillas now embraces and loves softball, her story is one that resonates with many female athletes: She only turned to the sport when she was barred from playing baseball.
“I always practiced sports, a little bit of everything: swimming, gymnastics, dance, tennis, karate, baseball. Suddenly, when I played baseball with children, they told me I can’t go to a World Cup because I’m a woman. That’s when I decided to switch to softball. The rest is history,” Aradillas told Esto. “At 9 years old, I switched to softball. At 15, I started representing Mexico, and at 27, I represented Mexico at the Olympics. I would not change anything that I experienced. At the time, it was perhaps painful, but now I see it as a gift.”
