It has been said that diamonds are a girl’s best friend. In the case of Pavithraa Devi Jayaindraan, set the glass slippers aside – this princess wears cleats instead.

 

Though her diamond sparkles not, it is guarded with every might. She justifies such a defence.

 

“Softball girls are not afraid of a little dirt. If it were easy, it would have been called baseball.”

 

 

Just progressed from Certificate in Business Management to Diploma in Management at MSU College Penang, the former student of Penang Sport School SMK Mutiara Impian takes her softball training as a competition each time.

 

“The competitive vibe is important in practice. It trains you to overcome nervousness, makes you more motivated and confident,” says Pavithraa Devi.

 

Her constant competitiveness is understandable. In softball it has also been said that you play for the name in front of your jersey and not for the name on your back. A bronze from the 2019 SEA Games in the Philippines is Pavithraa’s sweetest success thus far as it was also the first softball win for the Malaysian team.

 

 

With one championship title secured from the 2019 Chiang Mai Open in Thailand, the Most Valuable Player title along with a silver from the Makassar Open 2019, and another silver from the Taiwan International League 2019, Pavithraa Devi proves she means business when it comes to her sport.

 

It is no pun that she swings hard when life throws her a curveball. She had been injured once at a SUKMA meet in 2013 yet her sporting spirit has not faltered. Having begun representing Malaysia in softball at the 2015 SEA Games in Singapore and javelin at the 2017 SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur, Pavithraa Devi is determined to be a well-rounded national athlete.

 

Though she fights on equally well to reach that target and realize the dream, she views softball as her soul's lifeline. With that choice another saying rings every bit true for the MSUrian national softballer, albeit with a tiny twist: that of a girl’s place being at home.

 

For this girl to whom life’s practically a diamond pitch, there’s just no place like home base.

 

It really is all about that base.
