Q: Tell us a little bit about you and your softball story?
A: My love of the game of softball started at the age of 5. From the moment I played in my first coach pitch game, I was hooked! It has helped define me and turn me into who I am today.
Q: What is your favorite softball memory?
A: My first homerun was very memorable. However this past October 2021, I was chosen as the RMFL Junior Player of the Month. I was in total shock and super grateful to receive the recognition.
Watching Nina develop into the player that she is today is why I coach this game. The commitment and determination that she has shown to improve herself as both a defensive and offensive player is truly amazing. Nina has always been a very gifted player physically but has had to work very hard to learn the mental approach and knowledge of the game. I am very grateful for Nina and the example she sets for all of our players and coaches.
