Johanna Galvan’s softball journey commenced amidst the backdrop of family games and the inspiration drawn from her father’s and brother’s involvement in baseball.

She cherished the camaraderie with teammates, viewing them as an extension of her family, and relished the opportunity to travel across the United States, creating enduring memories with each trip. Influenced by her brother’s collegiate baseball career and inspired by former University of Arizona pitcher Shelby Babcock, Johanna embraced the competitive spirit of softball, constantly striving to improve her game and maintain mental resilience on the mound.

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.
