Q: Can you share a little bit about your softball story?
Hattori: I started in tee-ball at 5 years old and pursued baseball until I was 8 years old. Then found my first softball club team in which I played for 6 years and loved it. It was a great team and I was super close with my teammates. Last year, in my freshman year of high school softball, I received the recognition of being an all-league first team and all-state honorable mention.
Q: What is your favorite softball memory?
My favorite memory was when my 12u travel softball team won the USA Softball 12u Western National Championship in Arizona. It was a big event that happened because we lost to the team we beat in pool play and then, won against them in a bracket game. Then, we both got to
the championship and won against them again. I was so proud of myself and my teammates to not lose hope just because we lost to them once.
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.
