Who are you playing with in 2018?
2017 – Tunie Sports folded and I jumped on with an awesome group of guys from California called Pony Tail Express

2018 Free Agent – coreyjemiller@yahoo.com

What positions do you play and what is your best position?
Pitch/Infield.

Willing to really play any position needed including OF

Why do you like the game of softball?
I am extremely competitive and playing allows me to stay active and complete at the same time. I also like the fast pace of the game.

Who is the best up and coming player in softball and why?
Jordan Spaulding. I played with and against him the last few years, and to be able to go from D, to B, to Major in 3 years is incredible. He works hard and deserves it.

What is your height and weight?
6'2 220

Where do you call home?
Phoenix, AZ

What do you do for a living?
IT Internal Auditor

Did you play sports in High School / College / Pro?
I played Baseball and Basketball in high school. I played for the ASU Club Baseball team but nothing serious.

What would you say is your career highlight to this point? Maybe one play or game that sticks out to you in particular?
The first year I ever played tournament ball was with some buddies from high school and college, we didn't really know what we were doing, but ended up coming in third place in E Worlds in Vegas. My dad pitched for us at the time so being able to experience that with him was even better.

In your career was there a single person (player/manager/coach) who had the most significant impact on your approach to the game? Why?
This is my Dad by far. He has taught me everything I know. I definitely wouldn't be where I am today (in life in general) without him.

What advice can you give a young player trying to break into the upper level?
Eagerly and actively listening to all advice anyone who has been successful has for me.

What type of batting grip do you use and what ounce bat?
Slight Overlap – 26/27

What do you do in the offseason to prepare for the next softball season?
Being in AZ it is nice to not truly have an off season. Being able to take BP outside, field some grounders, and play in some back yarders definitely helps.

What is your favorite sports team and your favorite sport other than softball?
Pittsburgh Pirates, Pittsburgh Penguins, and the Dallas Cowboys.

ASU/Pitt for college ball

What would be your "at bat" music selection?
So many choices… Possibly something from the band Kansas

What is your favorite non-World tournament and why?
I would say Toys for Tots in CA. It is awesome to see all the talent out there, and usually spread out on different teams. Plus, it is all for a good cause

What is the best softball field/complex you have played at and why?
I would probably say Disney. That place is pretty incredible.

Where is the best place to eat on the road after a game?
YELP. I love to find some local spots with good ratings and check them out.

Tell us something about you that most would never know about you?
I graduated HS at 5'8 – 135lbs and finally started to grow in college.
