Mackenzie Coble named NWFL Junior September Player of the Month

By jess


The Northwest Fastpitch League (NWFL) is excited to spotlight Mackenzie Coble as the Junior September Player of the Month. Coble is third basemen and catcher on Washington Acers 12u Liljenberg.

Coble racked up an impressive .833 batting average and 3 doubles. The 2027 also played impeccable defensive all while locking down the left side at the hot corner.

“Mackenzie is an instant sparkplug to the top of the batting lineup,” said coach Mark Liljenberg. “She has the back of every player on her team. Her work ethic and dedication to the sport make coaching and teaching Mackenzie a very easy process.”

Mackenzie has been an athlete from a young age. She started playing baseball at the age of just 4. “I played select baseball from 8u thru 10u as a pitcher and 1st base,” she said. “I switched to softball, and was a 2nd year 10u player where I switched to 3rd base. I currently play 3rd base and help catch for my team as needed.”

“My favorite softball memory is a tie – in 10u I had 2 home runs in one game, where one was a grand slam. My other favorite memory was from last season- I caught a line drive at 3rd and threw it to 1st for a double play that ended the Championship game and helped our team bring home the win!”

From all of us at the Alliance and the NWFL, congratulations to Mackenzie Coble 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.
