RED, WHITE AND BLUE—Maddy Mekari, an incoming Westlake High freshman, is playing international softball games in Cuba this week. RICHARD GILLARD/Acorn NewspapersWhether it’s hitting off a tee, taking grounders or playing a simple game of catch, Maddy Mekari never lets a day go by without some softball in her life.
