What is your FAVORITE softball memory? “The relationships and friendships that I have been given through softball are probably one of my favorite things about this sport. Friendships that will last a lifetime.”

You have to form a superhero ‘A’ team. Half of your team is you, and the other half is an animal. You both have superpowers. Describe your sidekick, each of your superpowers, and why that’s what you picked. “My superhero team would consist of half my team being me and the other half being a cheetah with superpowers of super stretching abilities and superhuman strength. The ball would never drop or get through the infield with these superpowers and we would win every game, GO PRIDE!”
