What does it mean for you to represent your country at this level? It is one of the greatest honors of my life. I am more than excited about this opportunity to wear USA across my chest and represent my country.
What are the keys to the success of the USA Softball JuniorMen’s National Team entering the World Championships? Practice hard to be the best you can be when you get there and show up focused and ready to play ball with the one goal of winning the world championship in you head.
What you do enjoy the most about fast pitch softball? It is just a very fun, exciting and fast pace game. Much different than playing baseball to me.
How did you get started in fast pitch?
My sisters played fast pitch growing up and my dad was a coach. I began to start pitching and eventually taught myself to be very good. I filled out an online form for team USA and got invited to many camps and now have made the national team.
Any other personal story you would like to share about you oryour softball career? Playing softball has always been one of my biggest dreams although I never knew it would come true considering the south is not the biggest booming place for fast pitch. Sometimes I still get a crazy look when I tell people here in Georgia that I play fast pitch softball.
