What does it mean for you to represent your country at this level? I cried when I got the e-mail saying that I made the team.  That is all I need to say. 

What are the keys to the success of the USA Softball Junior Men’s National Team entering the World Championships?  Key hits with men on base.  Doing the little things; taking the extra base, moving runners, not giving away at bats, and giving the other team 21 outs. 

What you do enjoy the most about fast pitch softball?   The speed of the game.   The friendships you make on and off the field, and the competition.

How did you get started in fast pitch? My Dad, and his whole family play fast pitch softball ,

I grew up at the softball park.  I filled in for my dads team when I was 14, I have been hooked ever since.

Any other personal story you would like to share about you or your softball career?

I am proud to say that I am a fourth Generation fast pitch player.  I caught a Peter Meredith  no hit game in the Strawberry Days tourney  2013
