Brooklyn Paratore named PCFL Co-Jr. Player of the Month for May
The Pacific Coast Fastpitch League (PCFL) is excited to spotlight Brooklyn Parastore as May’s Co-Junior Player of the Month. Paratore is a 1st and 3rd baseman for the Firecrackers Leles 08.
Paratore during the Month of May had a batting average of 0.587 during 46 plate appearances. She had a 0.913 slugging percentage and 1.548 OPS. During those 46 plate appearances, she had 3 home runs, 28 RBIs, 19 singles, 4 doubles, and 1 triple.
“Brooklyn is the best pure hitter I have ever coached and Brooklyn possesses the mental toughness and drive that will propel her to reach her full potential,” said Coach Enyart. “Brooklyn never misses the extra rep behind the plate or the extra round of hitting before the game, and she is always thirsty for additional coaching. Brooklyn loves softball so much that she would play every inning of every game over the course of a long weekend and then after the championship game she would ask me to stay late to get in extra work. She is relentless in the best way possible. Moreover, Brooklyn is an amazing teammate and does everything she can to make those around her better with encouragement and support. Simply stated, Brooklyn is the dream athlete to coach and there is no limit to what she can achieve and I am excited to see where she leads her team!”
“I was born in Seattle and have lived in both Arizona and California,” said Brooklyn. “My mom signed me up for little league in Davis, CA when I was 5 because she told me, “That is what you do, you try all the sports”. I tried soccer, softball, basketball, tennis, and golf before I decided softball was my absolute passion. I played a year with the boys in Little League, multiple years for the rec softball league in Davis, until I finally found my home with Firecracker Leles in Rancho Cordova, CA!”
“I have so many great memories due to softball its hard to choose just one. None of my softball memories would have happened without my amazing coaches and teammates. If I had to choose just one memory, it would have been my first over the fence homer that actually happened this month. Hitting that ball felt like nothing I have ever experienced before and seeing my coaches and teammates cheering me on at home plate was amazing.”
From all of us at the Alliance and the PCFL, congratulations to Brooklyn Paratore 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.
