Several teams have participated in the virtual catching challenge, where the players are videoed throwing it to other players.

Heat 08, a traveling softball team out of Knoxville, made a video of their own with their team and a coach.

Allison Collins is the parent of one of the girls, named Bella. She said the team has been together for two years, and they're sad to be thrown off their game.

"They have been together for 2 years now and are really missing being on the field, as their travel season should have started by now," Collins said.

Despite being held back due to the outbreak, it hasn't dampened the girls' work ethic or spirits.

"These girls are continuing to work hard during their "quarantine" by holding each other accountable each day with workouts," Collins said.

Collins challenged other teams to participate in the virtual catch. Have you got a video of your team doing the challenge to submit? Send it to WVLT on Facebook.
