DELANEY Spaulding

What are you most looking forward to on the Team USA Tour?

I’m just really excited to see how it’s going to turn out, especially with our theme of Stand Beside Her. How different sponsors and your stops interpret and portray that is going to be really exciting. I’m excited to see our fans around the country and get everybody excited about the Olympics.

We’ll be playing my alma mater, UCLA, in Palm Springs - I can’t wait for that. Going to different universities and USA Softball locations, playing and interacting with fans will be fun.

What does the Stand Beside Her tour mean to you?

It can be a variety of things. Stand Beside Her: America the Beautiful. Stand Beside Her: the female athlete and how those athletes are getting recognized more in the public eye. I think that’s something we’re focusing on. Stand Beside Her: her being a young girl who looks up to an Olympic athlete. And, of course, Stand Beside Her: the 2020 Olympic team. Obviously there’s a lot of meaning behind it, so it’s really exciting for us.

What advice would you give young players?

Continue to have fun because this sport is so crazy. It’s a failure sport and that can really wear on you. As long as you continue to have fun and you realize what you love about this game, then you can hold onto that for a really long time. That’s something you should always look to whenever the game gets tough. Be present and enjoy the time with your teammates. I can’t believe how far my career has already gotten, so it’s important to be present in the moment and soak it all in.

Journaling and writing down everything you feel in the moment is really important. On your bad days, you know: “It’s OK. I know I’m capable of having good days as well. I will get back there.
