Started playing league with my pops, that turned into a chance to play tournament ball.

Moved to NC 2012 played for R&B lawncare E/D team didn't lose much with them won a Softball Nation world together that team was tough to beat. Played for Players Softball best D team around had a lot fun with them great dudes. Bad draw picked me up from there that was the highest level(c) I played before that team was stacked! Cash runs great program they going make noise this year!
Bobby Nifong is the reason I made it to upper level. He found me at a park hitting Bp with some buddies and asked me to demo the 2013 combats. They liked me and asked if I would play in the KC major a week away and he said no guarantees but I like to have you. Next day Hector Pagan calls me and asked me for all my information that Thursday I was on a flight to Kansas City and guess they like me and I got to finish the year with them!"
