It took Soldotna’s Lagi Wong six career games to get her ice cream.
Before the softball season, Wong made a bet with her cousin Lindsey Wong, an eighth-grader at Soldotna Middle School. If Lagi hit a home run this season, Lindsey had to buy Lagi ice cream. If Lagi failed to go yard, the ice cream was on Lagi.
Because Lagi, a senior who just moved back to the area from Utah, had never picked up a bat before this year, the odds were in favor of free ice cream for Lindsey.
One problem. Lagi is a natural.
