The Heart of America Fastpitch League is excited to announce the HFL’s November Junior Player of the Month: Weslyn McCorvey!
McCorvey is a 2028 graduate who competes for Epic 09 National Mitchell. The Mustang, OK. native batted .556 in November while recording a 1.489 OPS. McCorvey also added four RBI, two doubles, two triples, and a home run to her slash line for the month.
“After my second year of coaching travel ball I knew I needed to add some athleticism to my roster and I found Wes,” said Coach Mitchell. “She brings speed, confidence, and power to my team and the drive she has is out of this world, and you can tell her parents held her at a high standard which fits my team. Because I hold all my players accountable and Wes fits what I want to do on the dirt. She has a bright future as she continues to grow and develop in the game of softball.”
Q: Can you share a little bit about your softball story?
McCorvey: [I got started by] playing T-Ball @3 with my little brother. We played together until it was time to play machine pitch. It was a struggle for me to hit the ball from the machine. So my parents and I just kept working at it and at one practice I finally hit most of the bucket. [In] my game the next day I finally got on base with my first hit. After that season I moved on to travel ball at 7 years old. After being on a team for 2 ½ years I decided to switch and it was hard because I left my best friend.
Q: What is your favorite softball memory?
McCorvey: Hitting my first-ever home run on a 2-3 count was so awesome and it was my first tournament with my new team. The hardest part for me was bouncing back from a nasty injury. I hit my second career home run and the next day I snapped my tibia in 2 places. I thought I wasn’t gonna play again at the moment but with hard work and dedication from myself, coaches, parents, and most importantly my teammates I made it back. My hopeful college commit is the University of Alabama Roll tide!
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.
