This is Leow Teck Huat.
24 // Part time coach // Full time baseball enthusiast
Something sentimental to Teck Huat would be the lady he holds in the picture. Her name is Jasmine and both of them met through a sport which is very dear to them; baseball.
He was the one who established the first batch of women’s baseball team, which was created to give women a chance to play baseball as it is usually seen as a men’s sport.
When he first met Jasmine, he feels that she has a strong character and will power that enables her to do the things guys can do. She has a sense of uniqueness and likes to do things her own way. The thing that touches him most was her kind heart, she will go to all extend to help her friend and even sacrificing herself for it.
Jasmine means the world to him and his life revolves around her. In his memory, there is one line she said that is stuck in his head , it happened before the women’s baseball was formed. She looked him in the eyes and said, “you must create the women’s baseball team so that I can play, if not I will have nothing to do and I will die.” At that point of time, even though they were lesser than friends, he felt like he had the obligation to do things for her and pick her up.
He realized that perhaps that was the most important pushing factor to his motivation in life and at that moment he was at the lowest point in life, with no ambitions and dreams. That one sentence was the fuel that kept him going up till now.
Although they quarrel often, he cannot forget the words she said that night and it brings back all the emotions. Regarding the future, it looks bleak and uncertain for the both of them, but they believe in each other and will never let go no matter what may come.
Can we hear some awwwwww?
