Favorite memory to share: November 2018 I was playing in an Unlimited Bombs women’s softball tournament in Redding. My team was down three runs in the last inning. The other team intentionally walks the batter in front of me, so now the bases are loaded and the pressure is on. It was one of those dream scenarios – two outs, full count and the next pitch I hit a home run over the fence to win the game. The whole team immediately ran out of the dugout and onto the field to hug me and celebrate with me. It was so exciting.
