By jess


The Texas Fastpitch League (TFL) is excited to spotlight Ella Cunningham as the September player of the month. Cunningham is a pitcher on American Freedom National 2k24.

At the plate, Ella is hitting a whopping .409 with 5 home runs and an OPS of 1.527. In addition to her success at the plate, Cunningham has a 1.97 ERA in the circle, a 0.94 WHIP and is averaging one strikeout per inning.

“Ella is very talented, powerful, coachable, and a hard-working ball player,” coach Rex Ramos said.  “She is a huge asset for us at the plate and inside the circle. She excels in the classroom, and is a terrific person and great teammate. I am very proud of her.”

Cunningham started her softball journey at an early age. “When I was five years old, I tried ballet and that wasn’t for me. So, my parents signed me up for softball. At the first practice I got a bloody nose and fell in love with the sport and haven’t looked back,” Cunningham said.

Her favorite softball memory is when she hit five home runs in a single tournament.

From all of us at the Alliance and the TFL, congratulations to Ella Cunningham for her achievements.

What is the Alliance Fastpitch Player Recognition Program?

The Player Recognition Program was built to recognize and spotlight our individual players in each Member League. Each month, registered Alliance Fastpitch coaches can nominate a player from their age division. League Leadership will review nominations and a monthly stats report from AthletesGoLive (AGL) to determine the League’s Player of the Month.

Following the announcement of each League’s Players of the Month, the Alliance Fastpitch will recognize a National Player of the Month.

To be considered for Player of the Month, your team must score League games in AGL so your stats will be included in the League’s monthly report.
