What has been your favorite softball memory?
My favorite softball memory is playing the in the Loretta smith tournament when the score was 25-24. The game has lasted almost 4 hours and it was 9 innings. We had 1 out and there was a runner on second and I had hit a double that scored the winning run. That was my favorite memory.

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.
